Hi

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this piece, i picked up recently .

It is 26cm tall by 16cm at widest with a weight of roughly 2kg. Any information gratefully received, as been stumped by this one.

Thanks Patrick

It doesnít strike me as British. Difficult to say where itís from but maybe Southern Europe or Mexico?

Thanks for your thought there Naomi, certainly not found anything in id guides around the mark, in English or European sources.

May be worth searching in ethnographic and folkware pottery for similar decorative styles and clay

Yes i have done a little in that direction, it reminds me somewhat of some of the Greek stylized Lion depictions. I was rather hoping that someone might recognize the mark by hey the search goes on :) Thanks for the suggestions Naomi

Patrickb - The decoration especially round the top is very uneven and worked which would lead me to think this is not by someone who does this day in / day out.

Hi You may well have a point very hard to tell within this sort of primitive style. Not quite sure what to make of it really, some days i like its boldness and others days find it a little dark and clumsy. Thanks for the comment
