Small stoneware chicken ( I think) - Broadstairs Pottery

Post by lindylou08 on May 26th 2014, 1:30 pm

Hi

.... and now for something completely different ....

I'm sure this is intended to be a chicken and the signature on the base includes the word Easter. I have looked on the www and been unable to find any reference to the maker. So any ideas would be gratefully received . With my limited knowledge it screams Scandi and possibly the name is an indication of that??    8cms high





Thanks

Broadstairs Pottery - although this doesn't look as though it's been made in the same way as the Broadstairs ones, so may be a copy by Shelf?

Thanks for that Naomi
I see what you mean, but I fail to see why such direct copies would me made as thay are not that desirable . Having said that I'm aware that Shelf was responsible for ' taking over' some of the Tremar range.

Two thoughts
1. It was given as a gift by Elisabeth and Rainer Easter 1983 - or am I so dense I should have seen that before !!  Insane 

2. Did Broadstairs and/or Shelf always mark their things??

Yes, it's a gift.
Broadstairs sometimes stamped their pieces. Shelf, in my experience, isn't marked unless there's an old label on it.
