Jane Austen’s Cottage vase captures Jane Austen’s quintessentially English country cottage in Chawton, Hampshire. Here she wrote some of her best-known novels: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility,  Mansfield Park and Emma.

Emma Woodhouse, the eponymous heroine of Austen’s novel, had a passion for matchmaking. In Austen’s time, a bachelor would have worn a cornflower in his pocket to indicate his marriage availability. In their 5-inch vase Moorcroft Pottery designer Emma Bossons sows her own Bachelor’s Buttons in heights around the house itself: spikey blooms burst with royal and powder-blues, tinged with violet hues.

Other cottage garden flowers join the foray: wild strawberry pink and wine-coloured aquilegia; a bountiful backdrop of white mock orange blooms, all fluttering like ladies’ petticoats in a breeze.

Jane’s Cottage Vase comes in a numbered edition.
