Moorcroft The Gift



A garland of freshly sliced jaffa oranges and delicate white blossom enclose this vase. The connection of oranges to Christmas is said to come from the story that Saint Nicholas threw gold bags into houses through a window in the dead of night, and one ever-so-conveniently landed in a stocking drying by the fire. From this legendary incident the custom grew for the older members of the family secretly to place gifts in shoes, stockings or some kind of receptacle for children, who, finding them on the following morning, were quite willing to give St. Nicholas the credit.
