After many years of waiting - seeing them sell for crazy money.
I've finally acquired a set of 5 'Bill Fisher' Singers, for a good price. There is one other figure that matches this set, which I've only ever seen one example of.


Along with the others I've had for a long time, I've quite a good quire now.


I can also confirm my suspicion that one lot is a reworking of the other.
Before getting these latest 'Monk' singers, I thought they may be the reworked figures.
But I am now fairly certain, that they are the original ones.
My second set look to be the adjusted ones. With hats, bow ties and moustaches added, and stripes gouged into the coats. Whether this was a one off set or a 'limited edition' I've no idea - But I've not seen another set.

I do, but I don't have rights to it - just one I copied of ebay. So I can't really post it.

But it's about the height of the 3 middle ones. Long fat face (noticeably fat face/neck) and hands folded/clasping each other in front of him.
The only one I've ever seen, was on ebay in December 2010.

No idea why it should be so uncommon, when the others I've seen at least 5 sets of.

Edit - I've found a link to a tiny pic with it in

I think the plate is in fact a tray for a tea/coffee/lemonade set.

OK - saw some posted earlier in the thread. The clay is very light - feels brittle and fragile. I really would not like to put weight on it, the slightest crack and......disaster!

Yes Celtic is like that, but I think that's why it's ribbed, to make it a bit stronger.

Been out helping friends design their kitchen....  One person makes all the decision in that house...it's not Dave.

Dealer friend found this, it's interesting but only small.

the shape,the size,the finish..I think your question should be what is similar to Celtic?

From the look of that crazing Im guessing it's an early Mousehole piece but best to go back though this thread and look for colour matching pieces

Thanks for pointing me to this Dan.

Yeh, I agree - this is a very unusual fish dish.

From the pic's it looks to be 'fluted' and is not a shape I've ever seen before.
There is a large deep 'fruit' bowl, but that has straight(ish) side - not fluted.

The blackened sides is also rather unusual, as sides tend to be decorated or at least with a regular colour.
I've seen one vase with a blacked bottom and a 'dish' with black interior, but nothing like this.

The very flat base also seems to fit with a couple of things I have, believed to be Mousehole.

The colours are also unusual. Celtic Newlyn does seem to have had a period of using odd colours, but Mousehole also did have some varied colours.

From what I can see, I'd also suggest Mousehole production.
A VERY nice dish - that would look good in my collection Cheeky

NICE find Most Excellent

[Ahh, there is a story - I was up at the fair on Sunday and I was talking to a very helpful dealer caller Adrian. "Did you see the little Celtic dish?. No? Well wait here - I'll get it for you." Off he goes for a few minutes leaving me in charge of the stall. I stood there and was wondering what would happen if someone wanted to buy something, then I thought no just watch them. Then I thought I was watching too much, might put buyers off? Anyway I didn't really 'find' it in the true meaning we use in the forum. Credit where credit is due.]

Here's a later Mousehole piece signed by maggi , it seems to be hurriedly painted so I'm guessing production speed and turnover was becoming more important by this stage as Maggi was first and foremost a buisnesswoman

very much doubt it. when i say they are ready for the bin I think that's where they were found. To be honest it would cost more to restore than what they are worth

Celtic Newlyn Mug??

Post by vanmann on May 7th 2015, 10:06 am

I recently bought this mug which I believed to be Celtic Newlyn. I have been unable to find any images with this same design so would be grateful if someone could confirm (or otherwise) the origin of this piece. If this is Celtic is the detailing around the handle commonplace as I have never seen that before, and is there a name for this pattern.
All thoughts much appreciated John

not a design I have seen before but definitely made by Bill or Maggie and I would guess it was made in Mousehole
