Tree Sparrows designed by Kerry Goodwin
Tree Sparrows PLQ3 Plaque designed by Kerry Goodwin. Every now and again, a great design will emerge from Moorcroft – one which, by its very nature, will cause heads to turn and collectors to open their doors and bring it into their homes. These designs do not have to cost a fortune to be wrapped in that prized cloak of greatness. Indeed, their simplicity can bring them from nowhere to play with our emotions and remain with us for ever thereafter. There can hardly be a less likely subject for greatness than a group of seven tree sparrows, their plain brown and grey-fawn plumage with tell-tale black cheek spots, can hardly be said to come from the regal world of peacocks, yet here they are, posturing happily on the simplest of Moorcroft plaques. These seven sparrows is a design lining itself up to become a great piece of Moorcroft.
