I've tried reading the stamp but given up. May be Eastern European. If it proves to be collectable I might go back for it.

The second word reads 'POTTERY' and the first looks like MOD??. The figure at the rear looks like a harlequin.

I thought the second word was pottery too.

Do you think it's worth a punt? Can't find any resale values.

It would put me off that I can't see a ready market/price for it.

True. Plus they're an ugly couple.

Many thanks to Corri Piggott for this information  Most Excellent

This was indeed made by Graham Piggott of Bladon Pottery, but website now not edited; have a look at Facebook.com/ Piggottsculpture as we've traded from this site for 46 yrs and been Piggottsculpture since Sept.2010. This is up to date - relatively, but we are now semi-retired.
I couldn't find a place to edit and reply to the comments, but I would have told you that the Comedia dell Arte figures never were designed to be pretty, but that particular couple - Harlequin & Pulcinella Pantalon - was probably made in the 1980s. Having a family of actors and dancers, Graham has often worked with a 'nod' to Theatre. I agree, that piece probably is not of a high value, but it is historical as it was the only one. All Graham's pieces are unique. The stamp reads Bladon Pottery and with a Joined GP alongside - usually dated, but maybe not in those days. Regards, Corri Piggott


I should add that sadly they had sold when I went back for them. I’ve always wished I’d bought them when I had the chance. Such is life. I’m sure they went to a good home.

I’ve reloaded the photos full size incase Corri wishes to keep/share a copy
