What is the importance of Moorcroft Pottery markings?

Answer

Moorcroft pottery operates out of their original brick factory in Stoke-on-Trent, England. They are one of the last remaining art potteries in the world today. Moorcroft uses a proprietary glaze and methods that were pioneered by William Moorcroft at the end of the 19th century. Moorcroft was only 24 years old when he began designing pottery. His designs were labor-intensive and were brilliant and had amazing clarity. His studio was opened in 1897 within the James Macintyre & Co ceramic company. The markings on the piece also show the signature of the person that designed the piece.
