Designed by Paul Hilditch as part of Moorcroft's Evesham collection Gillie's 370/6 vase is a Limited edition of 60. ¬†A resident of England since the Norman invasion, this ancient flower varies in colour from blood red to a subtle, shaded orange. In the days before perfume, deodorants and air fresheners, wallflowers, or gillies as they are often called, filled a much-needed void in the fight against smells. The word ‚Äògilly‚Äô is a derivation of the French word ‚Äògirofle‚Äô meaning clove, and from the time of their arrival, gillies have been used both as fashionable air fresheners and colourful flower displays at one and the same time. During World War II, gillies received an unexpected boost in popularity when perfume became scarce and old hygiene problems surfaced once more. As a result, Evesham market gardeners always had a patch of gillies somewhere on their land and even as late as the 1950s, market gardeners continued to refer to their perfumed flowers as ‚Äògillies.‚Äô
