The Christmas Story was an illustrated manuscript designed by Frances and Margaret MacDonald. Produced around 1895, the manuscript was made from hand-painted watercolours with gold paint on vellum with fine stitching in gold thread. The title page featured a stylised Christmas tree, which was also a symbol for the tree of life.

Christmas trees have become symbolic with the festive season and so it was apt that Moorcroft Pottery designer Nicola Slaney took her inspiration from the MacDonalds’ manuscript title page for her design. Adorning her Christmas tree is a golden star and running parallel to the tree trunk is a series of Art Nouveau-style elongated shapes, while under the tree an intricate framework adds a further dimension to the design.

In the original manuscript, gold print and thread brought warmth to its pages and so Nicola has used an unusual cream-coloured clay to bring a warmth of her own to The Christmas Story.
