Collectors of Buchan pottery prefer decorated pieces, so this one, although it's rare, is mainly of academic interest

Yes the second number would be the size, or the capacity (in Fl oz) in the case of jugs.

Buchan, like some other far-removed potteries, also made Devon violet pots,

Possibly one of Buchan's plainer patterns, this is a 10" dinner plate from the Hebrides range.

Yes they are quite rare. I have a massive Buchan collection, but no cats.
Shape 293 / Size 10 (inches) / M7 Glaze / 246 Pattern.
I'm sure they were done in different decorations, and maybe even different sizes.

I suspect a lot of Cat collectors are hoarding them, like the rare Denby and Langley
cats, unaware, or uninterested in who actually made them.

Thank you so much denbydump thats really helpful , it makes sense that possibly they're being hoarded by the cat collectors , i think i'm going to go to auction with it , its just been sat on my window cill for years but now i know its rare I'm rather worried that it'll get broken. Now at least i have some info to give the auctioneer .
Thanks again much appreciated

PS Before i go would you have an idea of a reserve at all please ?
Hope its not cheeky to ask

we don't offer valuations on the forum as it would attract too many requests

auctioneers generally value by looking at past sales but in this case, they would find nothing

you can always try it at a high reserve then drop the reserve a little if it fails to sell

Hele, I know it appears that we are not being as helpful as we can but please imagine if we give you a low estimate and it sells high at auction, or conversely if we give a high estimate and eventually you sell it for a low price. Ceramics like yours can be notoriously hard to value and prices never stay steady. Its an impossible task,

I would recommend scouring the internet for sale values. You are not in a hurry so you have time on your side. You can also speak to more than one auction house. Be aware that items listed on the internet for very high prices often just sit unsold for ever. Just because someone is asking a price for an item does not make it worth that.

Good Luck!

I have no idea what it might be worth but, if it was mine, I would put it on eBay probably "Buy it Now" with offers accepted. I have been selling now for over 40 years and never wanted "top dollar" for anything. I suspect a "cat collector" might be the potential buyer and so I would look at sold prices of cats that seem similar. Personally, I wouldn't consider an auction house unless it was a specialist sales and I suspect it would be difficult to find a sale specialised enough for this.
