Since we first developed the desire to decorate our surroundings some 40,000 years ago, animals were the subject of choice. Animals, domestic, wild or pets have alway been well represented British pottery.

 

From menageries to individual specimens, famous, generic and infamous animals, mythical and even vermin. Antique pottery animals are highly sought after, their charm naivety and, often tenuous, form has lead to an increase in demand of late, a good solid investment that will bring joy to old and young alike.
