Moorcroft Pottery originated in Burslem in the late 19th century and has since become one of the most famous and collectable art potteries today.
Moorcroft leads the world of art pottery with its own distinctive design style. With added value coming from the skills and craftsmanship of a dedicated workforce, Moorcroft is selling more of its magnificent ware all over the world today, than it did even in its previous heyday in the mid-1920’s.
Clifton Ceramics being a leading stockist of contemporary Moorcroft Pottery carries all the latest designs and new releases, including many discontinued pieces.
At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I ended.
At 5am that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France.
In November 2018, 100 years on from Armistice Day, the world will pause to reflect, pay respect and remember the people whose lives were taken, during the First World War.
The poppy, Britain’s national symbol of remembrance, a pioneer species and a Moorcroft speciality for more than 100 years, takes a leading role in The Armistice Collection to offer respect to a whole generation whose sacrifices changed the world as we know it.
