It says Hornsea but I can’t find another on tinternet and the mark is not the usual. Thoughts and feelings please!

It's just possible! The mark (4) in italic script was used between 1951/52,
but mould No 129 refers to fauna jugs and tableware, not anything like this item,
so it maybe an unrecorded trial. Could DS be for Dog sign??

There's a hornsea group on Facebook who are usually very helpful. I believe there's a couple of people there who used to work for hornsea so might know more about this piece.

Thank you, I will contact them and see what they say. But I don't think I will be able to book a cruise on it!

No, you need a couple of owl jars for that 😆

I have pointed out this thread to some old-school collectors, who know much
more about the early novelty wares than I do, and they were immediately
convinced it is genuine Hornsea, but a completely unknown model.

If you google "The pekingese tells one" you will probably see a 1920s postcard
with that title.

Can we have a pic from a bit more above the base, so we can see the top of it?

I wonder if it was designed to have a dog stuck on it somewhere, as Colin Rawson
did design a set of small stand-alone Pekingese dogs 1955/56.

If it was a production piece, I'm sure one would have turned up by now, so it
is very likely to be a trial as I said earlier.

Yes it is!
That little plinth in front of the post would look right with a little dog on it.
