Chassyboy.
I can assure you these are most deffinately by the same Bill (William) Fisher.
Whoever told you otherwise doesn't know his work very well (if at all).
I have quite a bit of it myself and loads of photo's, one of which shows a very similar example to your horse.

These ARE by the Bill Fisher of Mousehole. 100%

this mug was designed and made by Bill Fisher in Mousehole , this example has a crudely turned foot which is quite unusual for Fisher vessels

Celtic Cornwall used that glaze, but can't say I've seen that shape before.

Post by dantheman on July 11th 2016, 10:01 am

I passed by Wharf Cottage last week and was saddened by it's near derelict state with no sign that it was ever used to produce works of art Sad

Celtic (Newlyn & Mousehole) - Page 14 Dscf0110

I asked lots of the villagers about the pottery produced in Mousehole during the 1960's and 70's, sadly all but one seemed disinterested and ignorant of their local heritage,

You could start a facebook page to get a brown plaque made (ceramic of course) - Wouldn't cost much, it could be in the style of mousehole.  I bashed up this image. Not good of course if they are going to demolish it.

Is it not quite brave to leave pieces in the raw? Surely they would have sold better with a dab or two of glaze?

Why did he do this ?

the unglazed animals get quite a patina when handled for decades,the lion has obviously been kept in a cabinet all of his life

He did paint some of his terracotta creations, particularly the people. Sometimes in some quite strong colours.
Personally I do prefer those that were left plain, which seems to be the case with his animals.
Dan, I'm not sure that that darker glossy colour is patina, as they also seem rather uniform all over - either dark 'glossy' or light and matt. I think it's either a difference in the clay used, or something else Bill did to them. You couldn't really handle them inside that tail loop, or right inside the nostrils or that head hair.

And for anyone who doesn't know, these were sold in Liberty's for a while.

we now have quite a collection of labels on this thread so the logical next step is to work out the date line and then pieces with labels can be roughly dated.
So which label is the earliest?

Well list out all the different marks first in text...

- CELTIC POTTERY Mousehole, Cornwall. (YELLOW LABEL)
- Designed and made by William Fisher, Mousehole, Cornwall (GREEN LABEL)
- The Studio at Wharf Cottage Mousehole, Cornwall (Boxed on YELLOW LABEL)
- Designed and made by William Fisher, Mousehole, Cornwall (RED LABEL)
- FISHER inscribed by hand

etc

Then best guess for date?
