2017 is a special year for Canadians as it brings with it the 150th anniversary of their Confederation. This is a celebration of the official recognition of the initial Confederation, which was an early version of what was to become Canada, as we know it today. Queen Elizabeth II, Canada's sovereign, offered her best wishes and congratulations on the 150th anniversary of Confederation in December 2016 whilst Prince Charles, and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, are set to tour Ontario and Nunavut before attending the national celebration in Ottawa in July. As ever, Moorcroft speaks in flowers and through the medium of ceramic art.

To pay tribute to this special anniversary, Emma found meaning through the floral emblems which are found on the heraldic device of the Canadian Coat of Arms. Her design therefore is bouquet of beauty, filled with significance, with Tudor Roses, shamrocks, thistles, Fleur de Lis and maple leaves. All the flowers tie wonderfully together, in the same way that Canadian’s diverse ancestral heritage does too.

Delivery expected at the end of July.
