A large "blossom ware" vase/jardiniere, as usual no mark, apart from "Hand made".

Post by Dogs&Daisies March 16th 2023, 2:05 pm

I have a vase which has the Bretby stamp on, just with 'England', but no number, so am curious to it's history. It is of the green & yellow matt which I have seen described as some of their early work but really not sure what I have here. Any clues ? I bought it about 35 yrs ago in Cornwall.

I think this is quite a late piece, probably from the 1950s.

It does have strict almost utilitarian circa 1950 loo to it, when government rationing was still in full force.

Thanks guys, the stamp looks so minimal that I wasn't sure if it was a Bretby! I've just always loved it while my other vases come & go :)

Hi,
I have recently purchased a large 10 x 7 inch Bretby vase that has the unusual decoration of two owls. One is in a moonlit scene between two tress and the other is in flight. Also which I find quite unusual is that the decoration is in thick enamels.
Would you be able to find out for me the artist and the red glaze to the vase.
Many Thanks.

Lovely. Helps to have a photo of the base. There may be a pattern number

Hi,
Many thanks for your quick reply.
Sadly there is no pattern number to the vase. But beside the Bretby mark to the right there is a letter within a circle.
I hope this helps.

So the decoration is Over the glaze?
Has it scratched? Will it scratch? or has it been fired on?

Yes, I was wondering if it was a later overpainting by a previous owner

Good afternoon,

In reply to the owl decoration which i am no expert, the decoration is over the glaze,
it appears fired on and does not scratch off.
I feel that there is a lighter red colour around the moon to depict the moonlight plus the painted gilt moon has an area of loss and is totally white underneath which would have been original.
Thank you.

A 10 in long cold painted cat with glass eyes, with a ball of wool, #1319, c1901.

There is also a model with it holding a cotton reel, and a rarer third model that
escapes me ATM. They originally had a red or pink ribbon collar, often missing.
They were also made with open backs as Posy holders.

They were later re-issued in a proper full black gloss glaze, again with ribbon
collars. There were also smaller versions of the same models.

 Bretby Art Pottery - Henry Tooth & Co. Ltd - Page 4 Empty Info On Bretby Unglazed Sculpture Pleae

Post by malkibiggs May 24th 2023, 2:56 pm

Hello ( and thanks for allowing me to join the forum )

At a recent auction I purchased a number of Bretby Pottery items, including vases and a parrot. What caught my eye though was an unglazed terracotta type finish to a super study of a young boy sat on a stone plinth. I have not been able to find its like anywhere and wonder if anyone can help with any information. It carries the full Bretby logo, Made In England and pattern number 3410 to the inside of the base.
Many thanks

It would date to approx 1933/34. Can't say I have seen this model, and no reference
in the book, but usually their figures were glazed, so it maybe unfinished, unless it
was an attempt at mimicing "Parian ware".
