Sorry it was the washed out colour that threw me.
A lot of this pre-war period of Bretby was cold painted over the glaze.
It does flake off and discolour, particularly the matt black they used a lot,
which may have happened here.

Hi All, I have a flying duck-- and it has an imprinted makers mark & england imprinted under it. I have searched for hours and can't find what the mark are. The duck is a very high quality I think compared to others - I thought it maybe Beswick but that mark is mystifying! Help please ;-) Bretby Art Pottery - Henry Tooth & Co. Ltd - Page 2 Img_6211

It would appear to be Bretby, though that specific mark is not shown
in the Bretby book.
May be made for a wholesaler/retailer, like the Denby wall ducks, which
were never marked as Denby.

Most wall ducks were made in the 1930s and 1950s.

Post by Bitsnbobs on Fri Aug 24, 2018 4:28 pm

Hi,
I have got this green glazed Bretby injured dog which has an incised Bretby & sunrise mark with pattern number also incised. Can anyone please advise me as to whether or not this type of mark was typical for the piece? Many thanks.

Never seen the model or the mark. Pattern #1348 was introduced in 1901.

Maybe there wasn't quite enough space on the base to use the standard
impressed stamp, so someone has had a go at incising it instead.

But these were surely mass production pieces of fairly low value? Incising like that would take much more time than a stamp. So it does not really make any economic sense.

I would assume they were in the first trial run of the design. After which they probably made a smaller stamp.

I just picked up this nice vase at an estate sale. Can anyone help me with identifying the maker. It is signed but the marking is faint. It looks like 7-8 characters long and I'm guessing it ends in ARD but I'm not positive. It also has the numbers 1670 and 16. Thanks for any help!

Bretby was my first thought too. I’ve seen a few of their pieces with this glaze and made to look like dented cast iron vessels

Yes it's in the Bretby book. Introduced in 1905, the range is called "Copperette",
These oddly shaped pieces were known as "quaints". The shape No 1670 fits that date also.

A large "Peasant ware" pitcher c1934.
This is the "shiny" version of this design. There is a "matt" example on the previous page.

Post by benwilliams on Tue Feb 26, 2019 11:36 am

Really don’t know anything about this. I’ll guess it’s early 20th C rather than 1970s or 1990s.
Nearly 12” tall,  clear moulding lines, oriental type dragon design.
Base is marked, unclear, could be 1998 and a line or 998 within 2 lines.
Darker brown shiny glaze inside.

Hi,

I've just purchased my first piece of Bretby and was hoping for some advice on its age and potential value. It is a small green wavy bowl and has the pattern number 1062B.

Any advice would be much appreciated.



Thanks and best regards

For an idea of value check completed listings on eBay. You may have to save the search if you can’t find the exact shape. Condition and colour are also important deciding factors for collectors. I’m guessing it’s a planter.

Here are two pieces measuring about 26cm and 14cm tall.

The tall vase has number 1700 on the base, plus 12 stamped on the edge, with 7 inscribed into the glaze.

The shorter one is number 1680.
