Jan Plichta Clover Cat Bovey Pottery Elton Pottery Wemyss Vintage Figurine
A pretty vintage, collectible, Jan Plichta, cat figurine in the Wemyss style that carries the mark Plichta London, made in England. Jan Plichta was a Czech emigrate in the 1900's who set up shop as an exporter, wholesaler of pottery and glass. He was one of Bovey Pottery's best customers and had his name marked on the Wemyss wares that were ordered from them. He is also known to have bought from the Elton Pottery of Thomas Mayer. Jan Plichta was in business from 1930 to the late 1950's.
Cat measures 5-3/4" tall and has no nicks or cracks. There is an all over crazing under the glaze, which I believe is the natural look as there is no crazing on the colors. Sweet figurine to add to an existing cat/kitten collection.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting!
