Richard & Susan Parkinson

Post by lyndhurst44 on September 14th 2009, 10:16 pm



Hi
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

Richard & Susan Parkinson bird figurine

Post by 20th-centuryboy on June 9th 2010, 1:38 pm

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 it is a bit, but the mouse still looks absolutely right to me.

no I wasn't comparing with a specific Sydenham mermaid, all his mermaids make the parkinson one look like it was made by a child
