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.

That was my though too; not enough space for the stamp.

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.
