Just found this myself, but you beat me to it.
A very interesting read. It seems to slight differ on the origins of Shelf from that posted earlier by Pothead.
I guess that is possibly down to the 'Chinese Whispers' effect ?

But the Tremar links are especially interesting.

Abstract Reindeer Stag Figure - XB Mark - Shelf Pottery, Halifax

Post by Clarehelen on June 16th 2016, 3:05 pm

Hello, anyone got any ideas on origin/maker of this curious piece. It is an unusual, abstract figure of a reindeer or stag. It has impressive antlers and three legs.
It's made of stoneware and is decorated with stylised slip patterning. The base is marked indistinctly with what looks like XB.
It stands almost 8" tall. I thought it might date to approximately the 1950s/60s? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I can't believe you've got one too! Is it exactly the same and do you know anything at all about it? Is it XB on the bottom?

yes XB
luckily I got mine from a dealer who had bought a large collection of Shelf pottery so although it was an unusual design ( which was the reason I picked it) the glazes,decoration and clay were a perfect fit for Shelf.
Freaky that I hardly ever look at mine but yesterday my wife and I discussed it over breakfast.

Thanks Dan - that's so useful. It is such an unusual design & I picked it up for exactly the same reason. It reminds me a bit of prehistoric cave paintings.
I'm not familiar with Shelf so see what I can find on line. Thanks again.

the three legged stag may have roots in prehistoric sub - Saharan culture, I have seen clay animals from Mali that share the tripod form

Hi thanks for the tip. Had a pleasant half hour refreshing on his stuff earlier and it is lovely. Couldn't find anything quite the same and frustratingly the mark is a little obscure. Thanks

Definitely Bernard Rooke. Not the best of his pieces tho. He was also very prolific,as his sons also worked at the pottery and produced work under his imprimatur. The most prized pieces nowadays are the very large lamp bases, which are now very much design pieces. There was an exhibition in Peterbrough a few months ago.

the fact that Rooke pottery can be mistaken for Shelf and vice versa speaks volumes
