    Moorcroft Pottery Coronation Lidded Box 956/6


    Product description

    Due to the historic and important role the Abbey has played in the nation’s coronation services for almost 1000 years; designer Kerry Goodwin wanted to include a number of its key architectural elements within her design to celebrate the occasion. The abbey has the highest Gothic vault in England and its arches surround the circumference of this round lidded box while the black and white triangular band, that runs around the base, pays homage to the chequerboard floor that runs past the choir stands to the high altar. Finally, the magnificent Rose Window inspired one of the most intricate lids Moorcroft has ever created.

    As for the shape itself, this harks back to the time of founder William Moorcroft, when it was last used to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III’s grandfather, King George VI on 12th May 1937. Its revival at Moorcroft pays tribute to the past, while commemorating the new Carolean era.
