Moorcroft Pomegranate Vase
Moorcroft Pomegranate vase by William Moorcroft is marked Berslem and England and signed William Moorcroft in green script. The piece dates from the period 1916-1921, according to the marks dating information presented in British Ceramic Art, 1870-1940 by John A. Bartlett, Schiffer Publishing,1993. The vase measures 9-3/4 in (24.76 cm). There is minute "scuff" mark on the foot rim (see pic). It is not a chip or glaze flake, but more like a minor touch by a grinding wheel. Other than this virtually indetectable mark, and a couple scratches, which require a microscope to find, the vase is in perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, repairs or any other type of damage.
