Antique William Moorcroft for James Macintyre Aurelian Ware Art Pottery Vase (Code 1662)
Before setting up the world famous Moorcroft Pottery William Moorcroft worked as design chief to James Macintyre & Co, also based in the Staffordshire potteries. He created a fine range of art pottery designs including this example which is part of the range known as Aurelian, perhaps in honour of the Roman emperor. This particular vase has a globular body and extended trumpet neck and the base is a pedestal style foot. The colours are those of the Imari palette and the blue has a definite hint of flow blue blurring the edges of the decoration. The Macintyre stamp is printed to the underside of the base and this example dates around 1905.
There is good restoration to the rim repairing a chip and the gilt has been repainted around the rim and down one of the gilt trumpets descending from the rim, this is shown in close up in image five for you. This would be fine in cabinet display but can be determined upon handling. Otherwise the item is in very good order.
