Moorcroft Masterpiece in Yellow



Iris G.P.Baker is a historic iris and was awarded the British Dykes Medal in 1930. Ninety-two years later, Moorcroft designer, Kerry Goodwin, triumphs with her vase featuring the famous G.P.Baker iris. With standards of rich primrose yellow which flutter down into falls of canary yellow with dazzling fawn-coloured tail beards, these giant flowers fan out on their profusely branching stalks from the base of this elegant vase. The British Iris Society (BIS) was founded in 1922 and so a design to commemorate its centenary was created in an Art Deco style. A richly embellished design, accentuated by gleaming metal accents, Rachel’s Art Deco Iris plaque and vase gleam. Emerald-coloured leaves create the streamlined appeal of Art Deco design and sapphire-blue and amethyst standards rise up over synchronised curves mirroring the colours in the falls and leaves below. This year, the British Iris Society celebrate their 100th anniversary. The first irises appeared in Moorcroft’s Florianware designs in 1898 and, over a century later, the Moorcroft Design Studio work their own iris magic to create the inaugural British Iris Society Collection. Each design carries an additional special centenary British Iris Society impressed backstamp.
