Product Description

Moorcroft Red Petticoat Vase

2024 The Leap Year Collection

Designer: Nicola Slaney

Limited Edition of 29 only

Shape: 72/6 

Dimensions: H 15 x W 8.5 x D 8.5cm

2024 is a leap year, and so we have a rare extra day in the month on the 29th February. There are lots of traditions surrounding leap days with the most well-known being that it was the day women could propose to men.

In years gone by wearing a red petticoat was thought to bring luck, if the lady flashed her intended suitor before proposing. Historically, this practice may originate from women dying their petticoats to indicate they were betrothed. Certainly, refusing a woman on this day was strongly frowned upon, and there used to be laws forbidding it, though these were later softened to a law stating that any man refusing a woman’s leap day proposal must buy her a pair of gloves at Easter.

The Red Petticoat vase features Fuchsia with its delicate nodding heads in tones of red, wine and pale pink buds.
