Hello,
I was hoping to find out something about an item that may or may not be Ulrome Pottery, I bought a small collection some 20+ years ago Ulrome animals (see photos). In the box there is also a pair of hands, all the items I have are Ulmore so I am hoping these might be to, the hands measure 6 ½  inch long, 4 ½ inch wide and 1 ¾ inch tall. They are black gloss not matt like the animals, they are similar underneath to the Ulrome animals, white clay with the hole and embossed into the clay is the number 520.
I would really appreciate if anyone has any ideas.
Regards, Dermot.


I have attempted to load photographs, unsure if it is working?

I'm no expert on Hornsea but the hands look more like West German pottery, but  there have been a lot of black glazed white earthenware figurines and novelty items like hand ring holders on the market, produced by revamped Devon potteries (I think New Dartmouth or Fosters is the name of one of them), so might be from there. But others will know better than me.

Yes with the mould No 520 it is genuine, though it was much copied worlwide.
Made at Ulrome and Edenfield in Black and White, 1957-58.

I think the seal on the left is a Colin Melbourne one, but I guess the other two and the polar bear are Ulrome. Only the smallest seal has a mark on the base...

You are right, the first one is not. The pix in the book are very difficult to compare with.
The 3rd one (Sea-lions BTW), may not be right, anyway the book says it should be
13.5 cms tall.

Hi, DD

The base is certainly different, but the modelling and features are very very similar - I would say the same person created them.

And yes, the Colin Melbourne is much more stylised.

Sorry, the polar bear is also right.
Anyway, help should be on it's way.

Cheers, dd

Mine appear to be the same as those included in the group photo at the start of this thread. I just wonder if the larger sea-lion was made at a different company but with the same mould.

Here's a 23cm-long panther which is unmarked. I guess it's Ulrome...Cleve Pottery, Ulrome, Driffield  Ulrome12

Yes the panther is right,
I have been told the large sea lion is also correct, even though
the base looks different.
All rare pieces in good condition!
