Art Pottery Figures #4 - Robina Hornsby

Here we have a mystery artist/potter; Robina Hornsby. I found this model quite a few years ago and sold it easily to a Polar Bear collector. It is a pottery sculpture of a Polar Bear similar in style to those of John Skeaping. The modelling was good but the quality of the pottery was poor.

No biographical details have been found on this artist. Yet the painted marks and numbering would suggest that more than one example/design were made.

Can anyone help ??
