1950s Empire Pottery Horse Head Wall Plaque Pattern 407
If you love horses then you will adore this 1950s Empire Pottery Horse Head Wall Plaque Pattern 407, made by the Empire Porcelain Company, Staffordshire, UK.
Beige in colour, it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. A wonderful gift for a horse lover or for display in an equine centre.
Although I am calling it a wall plaque, it could equally be called a wall pocket, as it has a cavity on top of the horse’s head. A handy little pocket for pens and pencils. You could also fill it with a few herbs and use it in the kitchen or just have it on display!
- Length: 17cm
- Width: 8cm
- Depth: 11cm
- Width and length of pocket:- 2.5cm x 2.5cm (1.0″)
This wall pocket is very much in the style of SylvaC, whom were producing similar types of earthenware figurines with the same glaze and colour palette in the 1950s.
Printed mark, EMPIRE ENGLAND, used in the 1940’s and 1950’s

Some Trivia For You!
