Moorcroft Fantastic Garland

FG159/6

£495.00

This beautiful vase has been made in homage to Shakespeare, one of the greatest and most versatile writers the world has ever seen. His eyes were always open to the beauties of nature and he had a gift of describing what he saw in a way few others could.

 In Hamlet, Shakespeare’s Gertrude says “they were fantastic garlands did she come with” and as Ophelia’s madness occurs in early summer, although the violets are “all withered”, she could pick in abundance fennel, columbines, daisies and pansies.
