William Moorcroft began his career in 1897 as a designer at James Macintyre & Co. Ltd in Staffordshire. William’s designs were an instant success and were quickly becoming noticed within the world of ceramics. Florian Ware was the first collection William Moorcroft designed and released under the Macintyre label. In 1913 Moorcroft decided to open up his own ceramic factory in Staffordshire.

The Moorcroft pottery grew in popularity and notoriety. Moorcroft pottery was being sold at prestigious stores as Liberty of London, Harrods and Tiffany & Company. In 1928 Moorcroft was appointed ‘Potters to H.M. The Queen”. Moorcroft remains prized by auction houses across the world and continually fetch high prices.

William’s son Walter took control of the business in 1945 and continued to develop the company to ensure and maintain its artistic qualities. The use of vibrant colors began to be used and dominated the Moorcroft pottery line post 1945. Walter introduced the exotic flowers design into the Moorcroft design which matured in the 1950’s.
