Bretby Pottery Vase - Can anyone supply any info?

Post by seandux on December 8th 2017, 8:52 pm

Hi All - hope someone can help. I found this Bretby Pottery Vase in one of our local auctions in the North West of England but can only find scant information about Bretby. There is no number on the base simply the Bretby impressed stamp which (according to the little info I have found) could mean it is a very early example. It has a simply 'copper' glaze but that looks as if it has been unevenly applied (or maybe with age has faded at uneven rates?). Quite large at 27 cm tall x 18 cm wide at the widest part and weighs in at almost 2 kgs. I'm afraid that's about I can say but if anyone can fill in any more information (date etc) it would be much appreciated. Thanks

The "rising sun" mark was first registered in 1884, but used throughout the
production of the pottery.
They used all sorts of glazes, but I would tend to towards an Oxblood
vase, probably early 20thC. A nice large piece.

I will move it to the Bretby thread eventually.

The type of design would normally nudge it to the between 1905-1920 when this type of glaze was most in fashion. Companies like Ruskin, Pilkington, Bretby, Ault all had ranges. Mid 1920's onwards things change with Art deco's paler colours.

Itís usually a pattern number, and the letter at the end might be a size code.

All ID requests are posted (or moved) to the ID My Pottery group and then moved to the relevant group once itís been identified, so Iíll delete your duplicate post in the British Group and merge this one with the main Bretby thread in due course

Are you just coming to this thread at the end of the day, Denby, or have you been following it from the first post? If itís the latter then youíll understand the full context of my comment.

Many thanks for explaining the number on the base. Apologies for mistakenly posting my original request twice in different places. With the forum insights it does look like from googling elsewhere the vase is a Bretby piece, although I have not found one exactly the same.

Sorry it was the washed out colour that threw me.
A lot of this pre-war period of Bretby was cold painted over the glaze.
It does flake off and discolour, particularly the matt black they used a lot,
which may have happened here.

Flying Duck identification help BRETBY

Post by smartee on July 7th 2018, 8:22 am

Hi All, I have a flying duck-- and it has an imprinted makers mark & england imprinted under it. I have searched for hours and can't find what the mark are. The duck is a very high quality I think compared to others - I thought it maybe Beswick but that mark is mystifying! Help please ;-)

It would appear to be Bretby, though that specific mark is not shown
in the Bretby book.
May be made for a wholesaler/retailer, like the Denby wall ducks, which
were never marked as Denby.

thanks so much for the help- I had spent ages trying to guess what it was. Any idea of age? it has the england mark not the 'made in england mark'. Now i can look it up and there are others and seem very rare - not sure of worth - it has 2 small chips. Thanks! again!

Most wall ducks were made in the 1930s and 1950s.

Bretby pottery dog

Post by Bitsnbobs on August 24th 2018, 4:28 pm

Hi,
I have got this green glazed Bretby injured dog which has an incised Bretby & sunrise mark with pattern number also incised. Can anyone please advise me as to whether or not this type of mark was typical for the piece? Many thanks.

Never seen the model or the mark. Pattern #1348 was introduced in 1901.

Maybe there wasn't quite enough space on the base to use the standard
impressed stamp, so someone has had a go at incising it instead.

That was my though too; not enough space for the stamp.
