What are bossons?

Bossons decorative pieces were made by W.H. Bossons, Ltd., of Congleton, England between 1948 and 1996. They include wall masks (heads), animals, barometers, mirrors, thermometers, bookends, lamp bases, pottery figures and much, much more!

More information and photos are available in the 'About Us - Bossons Artware' tab.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Donna McLernon on May 19, 2024.

Donna served as the 4th President/ Executive Director of the International Bossons Collectors Society from 2015 until her passing. She worked diligently throughout these years to support the organization – communications,  the newsletter, annual meetings,  finances, website and everything else that goes with managing the organization. 

But it was Donna’s organizational skills, positive attitude, her appreciation of the Bossons artwork and her love of the contacts and friendships developed during her tenure that made her truly shine.

Thank you for all you did for the IBCS. You will be missed.


Please be assured that options are being reviewed to ensure the continuation of the organization. 

We Will Go Forward

the Imagical World of Bossons

Book 1: This book provides an narrative of the development of the W.R. Bossons Company which designed, produced and marketed the renowned character wall masks, figurines, shelf ornaments, Ivorex, Briar Rose and Fraser-Art products. Book I covers information available through 1982. The 9x14 hard cover 238 page book has color photos of over 350 Bossons products.

Book 2:  Book II of the Imagical World of Bossons chronicles discoveries and developments of Bossons products from 1982-1994. With 176 pages and 515 color photograghs, Book II does not repeat nor is it an update of Book I. Rather it is a continuation of the original work. Book II contains an alphabetical index for both Book I and Book II. Collectors should possess both texts to have a complete reference to aid in the quest for Bossons artware. 

Collectors will find the Imagical World of Bossons Book I and Book II invaluable in identifying discontinued Bossons items. Together these two books provide a complete catalogue of Bossons products.
