Moorcroft Limited Edition Succession Collection Treetops View Plaque, MCR-288
Originally founded as a studio in 1897 within a large ceramic company, James Macintyre & Co. Moorcroft pottery soon made its mark on the world. Today, Moorcroft leads the world of art pottery with its own distinctive design style. We are proud to present this Moorcroft collection featuring stunning pottery designs.
In the multitude of countries, realms and states which have hosted a royal tour for HRH Queen Elizabeth II, there is perhaps no other location more magical than a hideaway place in Kenya. For Queen Elizabeth, Treetops and Sagana Lodge were chosen for a relaxing, wildlife-watching pause in Kenya during what was set to be a long tour of Australia and New Zealand, but destiny had other plans.
On February 6, 1952, George VI died in his sleep, making his heir apparent and elder daughter, Elizabeth, Queen of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth. This remarkable collection holds scenes from the natural world where the crown of our greatest and longest serving monarch began to shimmer under the heat of the African sun.
On February 5th 1952, Princess Elizabeth, then 25, spent the afternoon with her cine-camera capturing a herd of rhinos from her elevated vantage point above the Treetops waterhole in Aberdare National Park. That night, as she slept cradled in a fig tree, she actually ascended to her throne. This is a dramatic Moorcroft design. A lone rhino calf sits as two others sup at the waterhole while fig trees rise like cumulonimbus clouds lifting Treetops towards the distant outline of Mount Kenya, known across the world as the mountain of brightness.
