Hi

I like this little chap. If there's a paint stamp mark on base the dark blue glaze is hiding it. There's also a slight pertroleum sheen to the glaze.

I was thinking Cmielow or maybe Chodziez but I could not find anything quite like it there.

Thanks

I have a couple. Not found any with a label or mark. I think it’s most likely to be an Asian import

Sold as ring holders, I believe. I've seen them occassionally listed as Jersey Pottery or made in Italy, but there's no evidence for that .

Cmielow Poland perhaps or is this a mistake?

It would be marked if it was Cmielow, but although I’ve seen a fair number, none have a mark. And there are a lot of Cmielow cat designs with marks; it would be unusual not to mark these too if they made them

I was doing a bit of reading as I'm convinced these have to be Polish. Found a site selling new Cmielow. It struck me that not only does your piece not have any base mark but also missing the painted eye decorations .

In 2000 the Ćmielów factory in Poland discovered the original moulds for some classic designs from the 1950s. We’re pleased to offer our favourites of these wonderfully retro handpainted figures.

So that says to me that someone has got hold of a mould and knocked off a few to sell.

I had this one identified years ago on another forum which is long gone now. Unfortunately i can't remember what it was but i did move the photo to my UK section, so it's from the UK for sure.
