Potters who were based in Southall London. At the end of the nineteenth.  And the beginning of the twentieth century. Well known for their bird sculptures and bowls. Fashioned in a whimsical but highly skilful style. Their original designs now realising many thousands of pounds.

Identically to the Martin Brothers birds. The Burslem Pottery Grotesque Birds heads lift off. To reveal a cavity in the body. Originally  intended to store pipe tobacco.

Burslem Pottery established in 2006. Acquiring the designs and moulds of Cobridge Stoneware. A company within the Moorcroft group companies. And  closed down by Moorcroft. Where many of the birds available were designed by Andrew Hull.  As a result the birds are now produced by Burslem Pottery. To the same exacting standards at Cobridge Stoneware as required by Moorcroft.
