William Moorcroft 'Orchid' Dish
Fine example of a beautifully hand painted small Moorcroft bowl in the pretty and popular Orchid design. The dish displays very well and is unmistakably Moorcroft. The pattern is set on a pale green/blue background and shows a beautiful tubelined orchid flower in shades of pink and yellow.
Approximate Measurements :
Diameter : 4 1/2" (11cm)
Height : 1 1/2" (4cm)
The bowl is in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks or restoration and the colours are bright and vibrant. There are some light internal surface scratches and a few light scratches around the outer but nothing major.
It has an impressed stamp mark used with the facsimile signature of William Moorcroft and 'Potter to HM Queen' at the bottom right. This dates the piece to between 1930-1950.
