Richard & Susan Parkinson Strang10

Hi Richard & Susan Parkinson 727424
Does anyone recognise this large 8.5" tall and flat halloween abstract owl please? I thought it might be an early Carn item but it has no base stamp just an impressed back to back arrowhead mark under one foot. I have been informed that some early Carn pieces carried no backstamp only a label. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thank You,
Bryn

Can anyone help me identify this pottery Dove / Pigeon? It is approx 250mm tall and is made from slipware. The decoration is handpainted using what looks like a wax resist method? I know that the potter Margaret Hine  was famous for her birds in the 50's but not sure if this is one of hers or just something old by Ikea? The base has no marks apart form a raised code 24E and an inscribed 930, there is also a mark left by a sticker but i think this may have been a felt disc. This was an impulse buy at a carboot sale, I asked the seller about it and he knew nothing apart from it same from London?? (Probably Ikea London - ha ha!)

looks like it could be a Parkinsons piece, if it is it was a cracking buy. See the link below

Small bird.
Impressed S mark on the base, presumably for Susan.

8 1/2 inch plate, tiny, full impesssed mark, but what is it?

The Parkinson book documents the series of "Chess" plates, but unfortunately only
shows a couple of them. This is not the "Knight", my first thought.
To me this looks as though it could be Saggitarius (the archer), a zodiac sign.
Were there maybe a set of zodiac plates also? Never seen another one.

My first, and very small,  piece of Parkinson, staring out of the bargain basket in a charity shop. Impressed "MADE IN ENGLAND" plus a circular seal mark showing what looks like a crumbling stone wall.

There are 3 versions of the mouse, the white with a black base is the most common.
Originally produced for an outlet in Mousehole, Cornwall.

The seal mark should be 0.4 in accross. Can you make out a capital "P"?
It would be Richard's seal.

The seal mark is very small - about 4mm. I can't make out any letters. A closer view:

They don't normally carry that personal mark, is it not 'unusual' ?

Yes, they are shown in the book, as models 64 & 65, but as cat cruets with holes
around the nose area.

These are typical of Parkinson's cats. I believe they came in various sizes, not necessarily as cruet sets - 6" is too large for cruets; they would simply be figurines. They look slip moulded, hence the holes in the base. I believe another company bought the moulds and carried on producing pieces like the owls, but the decoration on these looks right for Parkinson but others may know better.

I'm reposting a couple of the photos for members who don't like clicking on links -

The cat cruet in the book is 6", so I guess they were made as either.
