My Kingfisher has no base but is quite heavy. I have also noticed that unlike the white one it has holes in the log base. I assume these were to insert flowers into and the whole thing stood in the bowl of water. This seems to me to be a good reason for there to be no base, as if there was it would get very messy inside with just the hole. Maybe the white one was made solely as an ornament.

This beautiful kingfisher has been comfirmed as Royal Oak by Oakpot.  It has a hollow base like Marl's.  Oakpot says it was decorated by Darryl Hargreaves in the late 1950s.  The kingfisher and the shell below it are both from Jim's legendary collection.
