Hard to tell on the decoration Naomi, but running a fingernail over the lines you can feel a ridge at some points, so I am thinking it is sgraffito ....in which case, taking 22s comments into account as well, I am more confident in calling it Briglin. Thanks for your inputs.

I picked this pot up today - if it has a maker's mark it's been obscured by the glaze but it's unmistakably a piece of Briglin Pottery and I think it's one of the most beautifully decorated pieces of Briglin that I've come across.

Yes it is. Quite a few pieces are seemingly unmarked, as are many in my collection,
but to our advantage of course!

Denby, your skruffy cat  is quite scarce, interesting, white clay is probably 50's, but vsn extend into 60's. Colours look good to me but would expect a cream glaze? Crazing on the glaze?

Potwurm - look good to me, this would be later, nice crisp base, 70's similar to honeysuckle pattern perhaps?

Yes the glaze is cream, the flash lightened it, and it's crazed, the mark won't photograph.

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.

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.
