Title: 1981M435 Wally Birds
Description: 1981M435
Wally Birds - Jar and Two Covers, 1914
Manufacturers: Martin Brothers
Designed by: Robert Wallace Martin (d. 1923)

This jar and two covers in the shape of a pair of grotesque birds is a fine example of Martinware. They were well known for their whimsically decorated vessels and bird sculptures, and are most probably called 'Wally' birds after Wallace Martin, the brother that created them.
Mounted on plinth. Carved and incised decoration. Painted in underglaze colours and enamels.
