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.
