Yes, stamped twice internally. Difficult to photograph in focus but I’ve posted one of the stamps above

Oh, I was wondering where the mark actually was, quite an unusual place to mark anyway!

Rye Pottery inc. David Sharp et al - Page 7 Empty Does anyone know what this model is?

Post by MissLS on April 16th 2020, 9:37 am

Hi everyone

I got this piece in a job lot with some other ceramic I wanted.  Does anyone know who the figure is supposed to be, I thought it was Mrs Tiggywinkle but I havent found one that looks like this one so I think it must be another character.  If anyone has seen it before and could let me know, that would be great!   Thank you!

Very nice. Unless it’s another character from Toad of Toad Hall, I think it’s probably meant to be Mrs Tiggywinkle but not too close a copy to avoid copyright issues if he didn’t have permission from Beatrix Potter’s estate to make it.

Having spoken to David's widow and son in the past, I don't think seeking permission was one of David's strong points, so I would agree with Naomi. They do look a similar vintage to the Toad of Toad Hall characters.

Thanks so much everyone.  I have a little shop online but I am quite new and really paranoid about unwittingly selling fake items so I always like to check with the collectors (i.e the experts!) on things I am not sure about or don't have books on yet.  That's really tickled me about the copyright Happy

His daughter said he roped his kids in to paint on the coloured glazes if it was a large order, so the quality can be a bit hit and miss. And the kiln was a bit dodgy so sometimes you got a lovely flambé red colour and other times a washed out brown :)

David's "other hobby" meant that he often stopped the kiln or opened it too early and so ruined everything. So it was more likely the potter at fault rather than the kiln.

I remember visiting the basement of the pottery after his death and seeing lots of his experimental art creations but all had firing cracks etc. because he was too keen to open the kiln to see what was inside. I recall that they looked interesting but I only saw them by torchlight, as the electricity in the basement was up the creek too.
