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

Further to my suspicion there is an undocumented Zodiac
series of plates. My "Saggitarius" plate is shown earlier in this thread.
These two plates are by Susan Parkinson, from
the March Wooley and Wallis sale. (pix on my own site).

Quite possibly Gemini the twins.

Hmm Dan, As the Parky items were slip-cast moulded, it's a bit of an unfair comparison. It wasn't so much about the pottery itself,
more about the design, and the humourous abstract art-work, particularly on the "flat" items like the plates and chargers.

Richard & Susan Parkinson - Page 2 Empty Richard & Susan Parkinson Dog

Post by PapaRay November 8th 2021, 9:22 pm

I've just taken a bit of a chance and bought this dog from Etsy for £20.

It was sold as being by Richard Parkinson and the mark seems to support that. However, I can't find any reference to this model online and the decoration seems unusual for the Parkinsons.

If love to know whether anyone has seen this before? Is it legit? Did I nab a bargain?

Thank you!

Neither the model nor the mark are in the book, which was noteable
for it's omissions.

But DD it does have that early look like the lion and unicorn and the right material and decoration. I don't see anything wrong with it.

Material, and colour look right, but its a bit twee, not abststact enough for me,
the hole in the base is badly finished, and I dont recall textured "fur" on any
animal figures. My jury is out on this one sorry...

Hmmm, thanks for the input. I am (obviously) a bit of a novice when it comes to this. Can I ask what book you are referring to?

I've taken a better photo of the mark. To my eyes, it does look very similar to one on BISPM.

The book Denby refers to is the standard book on Parkinson.
SUSAN PARKINSON AND THE RICHARD PARKINSON POTTERY by CAROL CASHMORE & TIM SMITH VINCENT. Published by the authors in 2004.
It is now quite expensive!

Ah, thanks. It looks like an interesting read, but I'll struggle to justify spending £70.

The two early (I assume) pieces are the Lion and Unicorn which I think do look like this. Very 50s, very twee.

I am looking at the book now. Page 77, there is a photo of model No 141 THE POODLE. It looks almost identical to this one. To quote from the book
'3 inches high. This model is unusual because
surface decoration is used to represent the fur rather than applied colour'
Which is exactly the body decoration in this one. It seems as though it is genuine.

Oh, that is good news. Thank you Philpot!

I'm very pleased to have this little guy as part of my fledgeling collection. I do agree that it looks a bit twee in comparison to most of the other models. I suppose that might explain why there seems to be fewer of these about?

Yes I missed the pic in the book, on a quick flick through!
Can't say I've ever seen this model before, but then I've had
some in the past that aren't even mentioned in the book.
Nice pick-up!

Hello, I wondered if anyone knew what the "g" mark on the base of this cat might represent. I know that some of the moulds were bought by George Gray for Cinque Ports Pottery, and so thought the g might be for him, but can't find anything to confirm this.

It looks like model 33 which should be 10 in high. Try shining a torch into the base,
if you can see the light coming through it's porcelain. Cinque ports was earthenware.
Haven't seen the g mark before though.

Thank you denbydump, light does shine through it so looks as though it's porcelain. The g remains a mystery :)

I’ve seen a few single letter stamps on Parkinson animals. They might be date codes
