Examples of this same or very similar decoration pattern can be seen in the book, Moorcroft Revised Edition 1897-1993 by Paul Atterbury on Page 143 in Plate 5, where it is described as an “orchid” design and says this pattern was first produced about 1947.

The piece is marked with a stamped mark “MOORCROFT” on the underside of the foot and the words “MADE IN ENGLAND” on two lines. On page 202 of the same book mentioned above it appears that this would be “Mark 18” which the book says was in use from “c1949-1986”.
