G'day all, just joined - specifically to show you this small and unremarkable Briglin pot.  I'm pretty sure it's genuine, because it's been in the family for years. I just "rediscovered" it whilst doing some spring cleaning and decided to look closer to see if it had a maker's imprint - which it does, albeit seemingly upside down, based upon what I have viewed in this topic.

You might just be able to see that the glaze ends about 10mm short of the lip of the pot (although I'm no expert!).  I don't know if this is usual.

I could not see anything like this in this topic, so thought I'd "throw" it out there!

Cheers,

Ian

Maybe an egg cup? Although it looks more like a beaker size. Maybe even from a series of practice pots for a new apprentice

A new addition (right) to my growing family of cats from the late 50s. As DD pointed out these are not porcelain but white clay, meaning they are Parkinson style but by Briglin. Most are base marked anyway. This is just after Parkinson made the thespian figures which are porcelain 1957/58 ish

Oh I do like those! The stuff that Briglin did in the earlier years always seems far more interesting than 70's+ Wax resist stuff that they are renowned for. How many pieces do you have now Crawford?

Dan no. Yes they were very creative in the 50, finding their feet - they tried load of things a lot of unusual things, sadly not a great deal survives. I've had the lions share of these cats over the last 15 years that have popped up. One every few years. Rare but not particularly valuable when compared to Parkinson. The sixties stuff is good also. Trouble is that they were really popular in the 70s so 95% of what is out there is churn / mass produced 70s wax resist stuff. Well made just not creative

N that is a nice one. It's got the black(?) oxide under then the gloopy white over. In the firing the bubble up together and you get a really good glaze mix. Look at it really closely an it's beautiful. It's what I think of the best of BRIGLIN. I can see it glopping up round the base, but not running over, they knew what they were doing.

I’m very pleased with it. Off eBay; the seller didn’t know what it was and listed it as Troika style.

The seemingly elusive 1960's storage jar in the larger size. 18.5 cms tall to the top of the finial and 10 cms in diameter. The lid has been cracked and stuck back on, and there is a teensy nick in the top finial. But apart from that it is tip top condition. A Charity shop find today.
                    Just wondering how rare these actually are?  I have never seen one in my numerous car boots in early years, and there was a lot of Briglin around then! Seen some small ones, but never this larger one. It is very unusual for Briglin though. Rarther nice in the texture and greenish spotting.

Have you been shopping in Wolverhampton? I picked an identical one up with a damaged lid last Friday in a charity shop and put back down because of the damage. Like you I have never seen another. What a strange coincidence 🤔

Philpot - I discussed these with Alan Pett who was a good friend of Brigitta and helped dismantle the 22 Crawford St kiln hen the lease ran out. He worked at Hatfield producing Briglin off site as it were in the last years.

These kitchen storage jars are the good stuff. 60s I believe, they are exercises in texture - must be difficult to get the lids to fit so exactly.

I have three or four and Alan sent me a photo of his group from his private collection. I'm an admirer of potters using grogged clay for it's texture as it must make things more difficult.

This as not made by one of the juniors. They are always beautifully thrown.

Images from an old Antiques Road Show. The fabled Richard Parkinson designed showbiz figures.The five illustrated here were valued at £8000-£10,000. Two missing apparently, one being Maria Callas.

I've spoken to her. That valuation is not correct. I shared with her all the records of sales I have. Info they gave out was not 100%

There's auction valuation, retail valuation, and insurance valuation. I'm guessing they gave a retail or insurance valuation

Well AR gives auction values but they looked like posh Piccadilly art gallery prices when you compare them to auction prices going back quite a few years. One sold recently with a low number but went for something like £500 all in but had a hairline that put me off. That does not make x5 go for 8-10k and I've seen higher numbers for the PR one than they say were made. I sold one by advertising it on my website for a very nice woman who got a good value for it in a cash deal - must be five or six years ago now.

They tend to double or triple the figure if it's a pair or a set. There was a Crowan teaset that sold for a ridiculous amount recently at Partridges, presumably because of the time and effort it would take to get the items individually

I think that a lot of markets for pottery have shifted recently. Some up some down. Like an earthquake the land we were used to moved overnight. All the Hornsea Aphrodite vases have just gone *poof* where there used to be a few on ebay. Just watched a little GS miniature sell for nearly £50 on EB. All a bit odd. I doubt prices will go higher but they might fall back. Dunno perhaps there is a new paradigm Shrugs

I’ve started spending £20-30 on items off eBay when previously I’d have stuck to £10-15. Not sure if it’s simply because the items are nice or it’s post-Lockdown madness Big Laughter

There were three of these figures sold at Wooley and Wallis in March 2018.
The Gielgud was £4,800, the Robeson £1800, and the Olivier £1300. So given there were 5 of them, perhaps the valuation was not too off.

Complete outliers. The others went for 500, 450, 350 and 600 you failed to mention them - do you have other prices?
