Does anyone recognise the maker of these?
 
One of these Bulls was sold on ebay a few months ago - the seller said he'd been told it was by John Hughes (World of Groggs).
The sig does look like it 'could be', but I've contacted them and they say it is not by Groggs or John.
 
I discovered these did seller last year with a larger horse figure as well (sadly I don't have that).
The cow seems to be entirely slip cast. The bulls body is slip cast, but the tail, horns (and 3 coils holding on the horns), seem to be added afterwards by hand.
The cow is 10inch long by 6inch high, Bull is 14inch long by 9inch tall (to top of tail).
 
They look a little bit like Carn, but I'm pretty sure they are not.
The Bull has a signature, the cow is unmarked but seems to be clearly the same maker.
 
Probably Cornish, but who? any help appreciated on these fantastic beasts.

Andre Loret, Sidmouth Pottery, Devon  Empty Andre Loret style pirate mug with entwined monogram impressed

Post by RVsaid January 5th 2014, 4:00 pm

Hi

Does anyone know this mark as the mug is very akin to Andre Loret's work but all the examples I could find have impressed words on the base.

Andre Loret, Sidmouth Pottery, Devon  Empty Studio Pottery head - Andre Loret

Post by Mordeep July 31st 2015, 9:29 am

Hi all

I was lucky enough to buy part of a collection yesterday. This head was amongst the items I picked up. It is signed but I can't read it. So any tips of insights would be very welcome.

Sorry for the picture angles. Only just got windows 10 and they are the right way up there, just not here.
 
Thanks

I think it's safe to say it's by Andre Loret even though it doesn't have his usual mark -

Seems he was based in Sidmouth, Devon, so the Sidmouth Pottery, made in a similar style, could be by his pottery too

Andre Loret, Sidmouth Pottery, Devon  Empty Raised seahorse moulded dish - Sidmouth Pottery

Post by benwilliams January 31st 2020, 12:49 pm

60s 70s looking dish, slip moulded I think, blackish and green glaze.
Lines and seahorse are raised up.
No mark. Don’t know why I’m thinking Cornwall. Anyone recognise it?
Thank you again everyone!

And a little more on Andé Loret, who was apparently a Polish count:
