A very fine collection there Jerry. Many of the animals do nothing for me (the middle cat in the third photo mad me laugh - now that one was made by a trainee) but your collection of vases is stunning. The whole Briglin gamut is there. They seem to sell well on eBay now and look a good investment.

Are you still collecting them? Are good examples harder to find now?

Hi Yes, still pick the odd one up, sell on most of the cylinders and the leafy Wax-resist
stuff. As we know many are unmarked or unclear, so you can find them still.

I know, I know ashtrays.... I've been squirreling away Briglin ashtrays, no one wants them an- are all the smokers dead? But the early ones are beautifully decorated. As time goes on they still follow the same formula with the duck egg speckled blue and vertical striped black exterior but it's obviously just a lesser copy. Once we get to the mid 70s then they are just churned out and brown  Waaah 

Examples above date from early/mid sixties up to mid 70's

90mm small
130mm medium
200mm large
250mm mega (empty once a year!)


I have more.... but can't find them

Dan you are right, if I ever sell them I will call them 'pot stands' - I suppose all ashtrays will go the same way as button hooks, vesta cases, candle snuffers and chicken bricks which in this modern age have no earthly use.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Unusual design, fish or flower?

Don't say the 'H' word  Insane  I bought a job-lot and there were some unusual ones in it. I thought collectors may appreciate a group photo of the herd since I have them all out together. I have always scoffed about the Briglin animals but they do go for good money in today's market. They will be 'going' - I need to downsize. The worst thing is that I have more, somewhere Shrugs

Never ever seen a penguin, and there may be another one in the middle of the huddle!

I can see three, I think, although one may be a mouse.

Sorry, I should have posted a base pic, even though there is no mark.

Is this a fake briglin owl?

Post by Guest on September 24th 2014, 8:23 pm

I'm sure I read on this site somewhere that briglin animals have been faked.
Is this one of them, as I have not seen an owl moneybox with an unglazed face?

Thanks : )

Saw one like this recently with Italy written on the base. It was made by Bitossi. Which would be the more valuable, Bitossi or Briglin, I wouldn't like to say, so a 'fake' can sometimes simply be a copy and still have a market for it.

Thanks Naomi, not really bothered about its value its a piece I bought just after joining the forum. In a way its likely rarer if its a fake Big Laughter

Cant imagine why someone would fake a Briglin owl...
They are not especially rare or valuable.

They are all different Zippy.

Clay and stamp look like my Briglin pieces. It's a decent looking fake if it is. Is Briglin worth enough to be faked? It's still pretty cheap

Agreed, I think it's Briglin. They're not always marked.

This is marked front at the base, but I was referring to a thread  I had read on this site about them being faked, I've found it now.

http://www.20thcenturyforum.com/t263-briglin-pottery-london

Sorry for any confusion caused.

I really know nothing about briglin animals and had not seen one similar without a glazed face so just wondered if it was real.

Zip - those eye surround shapes are very distinctive and follow on from the white clay originals from the late 50's Here are two white clay versions that are a little earlier than yours. I have owls coming out of my ears ATM and could put my hands on a few more. The big dusty one is probably about the same time as yours if it's groggy clay? Then sixties ENGLAND. They start sharp and clear and after they have made 30,000 they then to be all over the shop.

If you want to confirm they are old use a alternative method based on the Sherlock Holmes 'dust' test, but which uses a smartphone ... you can't fake dead wasps! Two would be from the fifties, one for the sixties and probably only a fly or two from the 70's... Big Laughter

So it was you that out bid me.
I was watching a load of stuff at that auction and everything went just above what I wanted to pay (having to add postage!).

Thanks Crawford for the info and the lovely pics of your parliament, I've only just seen your post sometimes the golden plus signs go white as though I've read a post when I haven't.
