Rare Exquisite Moorcroft Enamel and Gold Limited Edition Miniature Ginger Jar

About

Finest quality handmade and hand painted enamel miniature ginger jar or lidded vase, in perfect condition, features a gilt metal rim and lid (also with gilt metal rim) made by Moocroft. Limited edition of only 75 pieces made. Outside of jar features a pair of nesting finches in a white flowering dogwood tree on a blue background. Inside of vase depicts the view in the tree of the nest with 6 blue eggs. Outside of the lid has a flowering dogwood tree branch. Inside of the lid has a single fluffy white feather. Hallmarked, "Moorcroft 02 Made in England xx/75". The artist's initials are "TU". During a brief interlude, Moorcroft made some of the finest enamels in the world. Prized by collectors, Moorcroft only made enamels for a few years. The vase was designed by the Moorcroft Design Studio soon after Kingsley Enamels, (owned by the Hall family) was acquired by W Moorcroft in 1998. Four generations of expertise have gone into making this tiny masterpiece. The Hall family continued to preside over production even while under the ownership of Moorcroft Pottery. Enamel boxes were first produced in England during the reign of George II in the mid 18th century and are much sought after by the discerning collector. Jar measures 2.47" high without the lid and 2.85" high with the lid. Measures 2.33" in diameter. Weighs 95.4 grams.
