Vintage Find - Hornsea Ceramic Bird & Crab tiles




I love Hornsea Pottery and quite often come across some really nice pieces in local charity shops but I've not seen any of these before.

Wow, I've never seen these before. I love the glossy glaze in contrast to the matte.

Fantastic to find 2 together! I have the bird one in the same colours, I think they made them in orange/purple as well. I also found mine in a charity shop a few years back.
I think they were designed by John Clappison in the 70's but not made in huge numbers as they were quite labour intensive. Nice to discover your work and blog btw!
