Rumours Decorative Arts


will comp


As some of you may already know due to semi retirement TOWN HALL ANTIQUES in WOBURN has now closed and Rumours Decorative Arts are no longer trading from that address and have moved both house and business to NORTH YORKSHIRE where they will continue to trade and enjoy MOORCROFT POTTERY online from this website in this wonderful part of the world.

Because of the house move and the shop closure this website has not been updated for a while, new stock will be arriving soon and watch out for some generous reductions on some pieces to get the ball rolling again.


Rumours Decorative Arts were first established back in 1985, we exhibited at many quality Antique Fairs across the country showing a varied selection of English Art Pottery ceramics. In 1986 we discovered Moorcroft Pottery by purchasing by chance, a 1940’s piece of the Anemone pattern on a Blue ground, at a local Antiques Fair and just loved it, at that time not very many people knew of the Pottery and it was still relatively undiscovered. We were very fortunate to meet Richard Dennis and our education and love for this incredible English Art Pottery had begun and we became besotted with this unique company.

Soon most of our stock had been converted to Moorcroft Pottery and our own collection had started to grow. With pieces from all periods , from the very Early William Florian pieces made at the MacIntyre Factory through to Walter's designs in the 1950’s and 1960’s, our stock grew and we soon became specialists and official retailers of new Moorcroft Pottery, we opened our first shop in the Georgian Village, Camden Passage in 1989, until recently we were at TOWN HALL ANTIQUES in WOBURN, Beds and are now situated NORTH YORKSHIRE

Over the years we have developed a good, strong and reliable reputation with dealers and collectors alike worldwide. All of our pieces are described accurately. Please purchase with confidence as we are a dealer with a fine pedigree.

Lea Stein was born in Paris in 1931 and started designing jewellery in the late 1960's, when her husband Fernand Steinberg discovered the process of laminating many layers of acetate sheets creating a multi layer effect, once the layered sheets had been blended they were baked to harden and various shapes could be carved to create a unique range of colours and patterns.
