Miniseries potteries
« on: January 23, 2019, 08:40:41 PM »
Some of you may remember the Moorcroft potteries announced a while back?

They are now available!  There are five characters: Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig, Clover and The General.

They're very expensive.  The cheapest is 660£, and two of them cost over 1000£.

Holy.

They're beautiful, but, jeez, that's a hefty price.

I'd be too scared of breaking it to display it, most likely.

They're beautiful indeed! Is moorcroft somewhat of a special brand, so that's why they're so expensive? Like Tiffany, Stickley and so on?

I suppose it is.  According to Wikipedia, the company was founded in 1897.  Also, these appear to be limited edtions and numbered.

There's no way I'm going to buy these, especially since they would have to be shipped across the ocean, who knows if they would even reach their destination in one piece?

Apart from the picture and colouring books, this is the only merchandise released so far, although there appears to be more to come.

Interesting, a Brand like this produces stuff something like this. Would be like Cartier producing a bangle with a diamond rabbit on it, haha.

Yeah, I also woldn't risk shipping something that costy.  :X

Since they're limited, they won't get cheaper by time, too bad. I'd be interested, but Pounds to €s are even quite more expensive on my end. D: Still... beautiful, argh! :woundwort

Not really for the everyday fan at those prices...

However, they are rather lovely and certainly unique. My favourites are the Clover and Hazel vases.

Fiver looks like an old man.  :fiver3 Like Geppetto from Pinocchio:p

Chipster posted this a little while ago, but here's a reminder of other upcoming merchandise. Hopefully affordable for all rabbits.
Looks like we have next to expect is some garden statues in May.

Nemesis was supposed to release statues last December, but sadly didn't. I hope they do create some WD statues in the future because looking at their website they make pretty cool collector items.

For me, the General. I like the colors. Deep and warm.

I actually don't quite see it myself. He just looks like a bunny to me.
