Hi Everyone
I know very little about pottery and I'm hoping someone can help with this lidded bowl I've been given.
I was told that some Moorcroft pieces had only a paper label attached to the base and had no impressed marks. As can be seen from the photos there are no marks nor label on the base. Again I was told that the label may have come off due to washing or just age??
Any comments would be gratefully received.
Thanks
John

Hi there

It could be Moorcroft with a mark hardly visible through the glaze , but there is another pottery who made this type around 1900-1920 but i can't remember their name.

They're pots are rarely marked like yours and still fetch around the same money as Moorcroft , i cant quite remember their name although it is on the tip of my tongue.

I will try and remember and get back to you.

The quality is too good for the more modern cheaper imitations.

looks right to me but check Moorcroft lidded pots in a Google image search to find a match

Agreed Dan, it's the "Hibiscus" pattern.

The Mark is often very small, and not in the centre, "MOORCROFT" in capitals.
Often hard to see under the glaze when it's crazed like that.

Thanks very much carlos32golf, dantheman and denbydump for your replies most helpful.
I've looked closely at the base and there is definitely no Moorcroft mark at all. This is what made me think if it was genuine or not.
Does anyone know if all their pieces were definitely impressed with the Moorcroft name?
Thanks
John
