Agreed, looks like Margery Seaton. Looks like it's labelled Hengoed which is in Wales. Ive come across a number of studio pottery birds signed Hengoed so it looks like this lady also made animal figurines

Hi,

I can tell you with certainty, that the piece is not by the Hengoed Pottery.

It is a common misconception that the pottery was in Hengoed in Wales, but the Hengoed Pottery was actually based in Shropshire - specifically at Upper Hengoed, just North of Oswestry.  The pottery was owned by a chap called Cyril Charlton and his wife (I can't remember her name).  My family owned a pub from 1981 - 2007 called The Last Inn and the pottery was about 1/4 of a mile away.  Cyril was a chap with a big moustache - he looked rather like Jimmy Edwards;he'd previously worked for Monsanto Chemicals.  Cyril and his wife, both died about 20 years ago.  The pottery (& kiln) was actually an annex to the bungalow in which they lived.  I know the current owner very well and when he bought the place, he 'inherited' the kiln and many pieces of Hengoed pottery - I've a couple of pieces myself.

I'm sorry that I can help you with the piece in question, but it isn't from the Hengoed Pottery.
