Help to Identify Studio Pottery Whistle

Post by Clarehelen on August 7th 2017, 1:25 pm

Hello, I bought this lovely pottery whistle in the shape of a hen at a yard sale recently. It is made of red clay with slip decoration.
It stands 3.5" tall and is signed on the base. it looks like 'Lind', but I can't be sure. Can anyone identify who made this, or is it an amateur piece?
Thanks for your help, Clare

its a long shot but it could be Lauder? Not sure the dot next to the L works for that and never seen a whistle by him but the clay and glaze are right. Alexander lauder Barnstable North Devon, try and see if any of his signatures match. If it is by him I'm its late 19th century.

Looks Mediterranean to me. Lauder had Barum in the mark.

Could be Northern European, there are towns that have whistle fairs but I can't remember the place names at the moment

Lund or Lind could be Swedish, but the terracotta looks wrong.

Thanks for the replies. Having looked at Lauder marks, I don't think it quite right. I've found that there is an annual bird whistle festival in Luxembourg. This doesn't look like one of the traditional whistles associated with this, but they do make different styles, so it is a possibility. Maybe Swedish/Scandinavian though, but I can't find anything like it, and I agree the clay doesn't look right. I'll keep on looking!!
