Barsony Cermaics 

I have 3 lovely lamps all excellent condition, with original electrical fittings and shades, all are stamped on the bottom with numbers and letters.
I also have a head and shoulders piece that I think may have once been a lamp. She is in excellent condition and still has original earings and is marked on the bottom George Barsonay Ceramics and has a code on the bottom. Have included some pics and wondered if you could tell me what the current market looks like for these pieces.

I have seen them 'round auciton houses in the periphery of my vision, I guess they are from the fifties and kind of fashionable today, but what the hay, I have no idea about modern items being an old fashion sort of bloke, my interest kind of stopped at the end of the 18th century, can't get my head around this sort of area, however there are plenty of people out there who know about these things, check out your local collectors antique markets, they would know, best of luck
