Summary

A lovely (and hard to find) pair of vintage fishes by Broadstairs Pottery, Kent. Circa 1970s or so - the pottery ran from 1968 to 1983. Broadstairs Pottery was David James White and Mary Dening, I believe, but some items are also by Dianne Sanders. They are both unstamped, but typical of the Broadstairs' clay, colour tone and imprinted shapes. I'm pretty sure they are Broadstairs, but these little fellows are very hard to find! (Funnily enough I had a fish before, but I'm not far from Kent so I'm wondering if a gallery round here used to sell these pottery fish).

Two handmade pottery flat-sided fish shapes, with unglazed biscuit coloured middle sections with rows of subtle incised shapes. Top and lower sections are lightly glazed in a taupe colour - it's all neutral-toned. The larger one has a distinctive V-shaped glaze, more detail, and some darker brown patches. Hollow inside. Typical of the 70s Studio Pottery era. The fishes are smiling and friendly looking.

Pair: the smaller one is a petite 11.5cm long x 7cm x 3.5cm wide at base. The larger one is 19cm long x 10cm tall x 4.5cm wide at the base.

Excellent condition. Any glaze imperfections are from at the time of manufacture.
