Fauna

I love pieces of Fauna pottery. I suppose like lots of things that were made in the 60's and 70's, they remind of bits and pieces that my Nan and Granddad had. I wanted to own a Fauna vase for a while so when I found these 3 pieces dotted about, I thought they would love to come home with me :)

I found this one first, made in Hornsea (very close to us) where most Fauna was made. I think it's so cute, but I just love the little Bambi.



Flushed with the excitment of finding the Bambi vase, I then saw a wee rabbit (should I call it a Thumper to keep with the theme!)




Then another larger vase (or is it a jug?) with another little Bambi and her squirrel friend.




The 3 pieces sit together now in my conservatory. There are lots more designs in the Fauna range, but I think these 3 are my favourites... not that I'm promising I wouldn't get anymore of course!



Take care

  1. I have seen this type of pottery before but I didn't know it was called Fauna, nor did I know that it was made way back in the day, it's really charming, my daughter would love pieces like this, she's a little collector of things... They are beautiful.

  3. Those are cute. I've never seen that kind of pottery. I think they are especially nice for a conservatory.

  4. Hi Cheryl, these pieces are like buses, you don't see one for ages, then 3 come along at once! I too found 3 (all fawns) in one week, all in different places!

    Love, Claire xxx
