Bought this piece in Belgium several years ago and have never been able to find out anything about it.  It is ceramic sculpture of a stylised bird which has then been mounted on what I think is an alabaster/marble base.  The whole thing stands over 40cm tall, and is very heavy due to the bit of rock stuck to it!  It does have an impressed mark in the side, but never been able to find anything online about it.  Last weekend saw another version that was larger and had two quails on it, but although the dealer suspected it was norwegian, he had no clue as to who made it.

I hope that I am in the most appropriate section. It is my first time so steep learning curve and all that. Embarrassed

Hi Dunc,

The section is correct, just as of yet none of us know who made it either.

I can say that I think it is very nice and looks to have been well made, I too would have said Norwegian.

Thank you so much R.Ferrao and Potty. I have had it for about three years and had given up trying to find out more about it until I saw a similar one at a vintage design fair.

Wasn't even close with Norwegian!
