Moorcroft Fox and cubs jar

RSPB > Gifts & home > Home & kitchen > Home decor & furnishings > Nature & bird ornaments

Every once in a while, designers at Moorcroft stumble across a species of plant or animal that captures their imagination and takes them into a new journey of discovery. One of Vicky’s favourite subjects is British wildlife, so foxes have always been a regular occurrence in her designs. This time, however, they are accompanied by a flower new to Moorcroft design, the fox and cubs flower, or orange hawkbit as it is often known. Plants with lyrical, meaningful names that describe a unique appearance or trait are entertaining and fun. Pilosella fox and cubs wildflowers are just such plants. The name refers to the sunny daisy-like, rusty orange mature flower and its flanking buds, with fuzzy blackish haloed hair. Of course, Vicky paired these dainty wildflowers with a depiction of a real mama fox and her cubs, beautifully stylized with pointy ears and soft white bibs on this lovely lidded jar.
