Butter dish - probably by Derek Day

Looks similar to an early Ursula Mommens' mark, but did she ever do bunny rabbits? Also similar to Derek Day's mark, but not finding similar motif on his pieces either.

Not too much like her early mark. Equally, 'Bunnies' seem a but cutey for her. She was very much dead centre of the Leach Anglo/Oriental school, and bunnies would be somewhat frowned on, in the somewhat Spartan philosophy of that school! Big Laughter

Well rabbits are popular in Japanese mythology, and I've seen a bowl of hers with fish, but it does seem a bit too cutsie for her. I think Potty had a set of her mugs with animals on but he hadn't posted any photos of them here.
