Trentham Pottery Bull for sale at yay retro!

So pleased to have found this is a fabulous example of a large Trentham Pottery Bull from the 1960s for the yay retro! shop.

It is a deep green with interesting pale blue abstract patterns which have been created by dripped glazes. It's actually a money box, however it works really as well as an ornament as the hole for the money is barely noticeable - the stopper is in place.

Designed by Colin Melbourne, the bull was a popular motif in the 60s with the growing ability for people to take what were then 'exotic holidays' in countries such as Spain.
