This is a large and unusual pottery bird with distinctive incised decoration and what looks like bells / decorations around the neck - it has a fish like incised mark to the base - does the bird or mark look familiar to anyone as its very distinctive and unusual!

Unfortunately there is damage - the neck has been off at some stage and some of the embellishments around the neck have also been off and glued back on!

Yes I would also love to learn how to restore pieces but unfortunately don't have the time! If I did decide to sell this then I would sell it locally (I am in Berkshire) as I wouldn't risk posting it

Well as the saying goes all is fair in Love, War and pottery buying CHICKEN BIRD INCISED DECORATION FISH MARK? - George Cook, Ambleside   131725

I am the only local with a fair Cook collection as posted

I'm still actually sulking about a piece of Scandi last month - I've waited years for one to come up and it sat a £20 for ages and I was outbid even though I bid double what the last one went for and it went to USA. You can tell because the postage changed to US.

That is a hefty estimate for a damaged piece. Given the extras that you will have to pay.

Buyers Premium: 25% + VAT (total 30%)

Lots purchased online with the-saleroom.com will attract an additional charge for this service in the sum of 5% of the hammer price plus VAT at the rate imposed (total 6%) I assume you can avoid this.

total 36% if you go through the saleroom + postage.

so equates to £272 to £408 + postage.

Is that right?

Bid £200 and it’ll cost you £260 plus shipping around £35 i would think….they ship in house but they are usually around that from memory for this house….so just under £300 minimum if that’s the reserve….

This one. Not really comparable, the fish are later and moulded. Leach54321's bird is singed CooK and look at the work he put into the body. I could see it perching perfectly happily alongside a Margaret Hine bird on someone's mantle piece.
