Footnotes

  • Of all the Moorcroft landscape designs, this colourway with blue trees against a white ground, was the first registered design in September 1902. The heights of the trees were varied to fit the vessel that the design was to be applied to. By the end of 1902, the more commonly seen green colourway was also in production, and both versions featured in major retailers such as Liberty's and, in this instance, Townsend of Newcastle.
