There are mould remains of eggcups on the Portage Museum site and as there has been a lot of debate about these I thought it a good idea to add these.  They have many other eggcups in their collection, some are attributed to Amalgamated Brick and Pipe or Crown Lynn, but many have been titled as Unknown.

There is another eggcup possibility, but I need to see it in real life to tell what it is a mould of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Richard told me he had found a squirrel eggcup mould - could this be it?

I can't tell what it is Tony. Can you see a squirrel?

Its hard to tell from the mould, which seems to be quite abraded, but I can only think this is the fish:

Wow thanks T&C I will add your fish to the Eggcup Gallery cheers

How embarrassing to say that there was a fish eggcup in the gallery from HeatherT. Embarassed

I will be going to the Portage Museum again next week and I will check out the mould in question as well as the squirrel eggcup that they have to see if there is a match.

The 'squirrel' mould is in fact another wee rabbit, but my camera battery just died so I'll put that one up in an hour or so. The rabbit bisque fragment is from that other earlier eggcup that comes in running glaze or was painted in the early 1950s and given the number 164. It is also sometimes described as a posy basket.

Checked out this mould fragment today along with a squirrel eggcup. The mould is of an eggcup and it isn't a squirrel, but most likely is the running rabbit that T&C posted above.
There are no other eggcup moulds Tony, so I think Richard was guessing on this one.

In Richard's writings he is talking about moulds that he has found and he says that he found 2 shapes of the ever popular children's eggcup animal range and a frog mould completely unknown to him.

I thought we had all decided that Old King Cole, Red Riding Hood and the others were NOT CL, so why are they displayed as such here? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If you click onto the photo of the eggcups you will see 'Maker Unknown'
Also the 'Probably Royal Art Pottery etc' note.
The Portage Museum has all of the pottery that Richard Quinn collected, regardless if it was Crown Lynn or not.
They can't throw out any pieces that are not Crown Lynn, but they can change the maker etc.
This is an ongoing problem and if they are alerted to any wrong identification, they can correct this.
I saw those eggcups listed yesterday, but didn't want to go there with the trader.
If you can add links to identification then do so as they won't believe you otherwise.

I can't find that auction now .....?
Edits to add that I found the auction in Antiques etc
