I've had this little bird for a long while. It's not really to my taste but have always wondered who made it because of its roughly painted body. I would say that it was originally white and has been painted by an amateur, but for the signature on the base which looks to be 'JW / E 82'? Anyone any clues? H: 4 1/4". Thanks

The modelling and glazing reminds me very much of the animal models produced by David Sharp Rye pottery

From a John Bourdeaux wren mould, but not up to his usual standard. Looks like a glaze test piece.

Thanks Naomi you're spot on. I've had a look at a few of JB's wrens and they seem to be moulded stoneware body, whereas mine is porcelain. Like you say, it could be a test piece... I wonder who 'JW' is? Thanks again
