Hi,
I purchased this dragon pattern slipware jug last week. Looks like a copy of the old North Staffordshire pottery style. I can see the makers name quite clearly, I think the place name is Weymouth and part of the top name could be Pottery but not sure. I have googled without success. I wonder if someone on this super board can shed some light please.
Thanks
Bryn

Queen, slab-built and slipware decorated.
Inscribed L. Stockley Weymouth on the base.
Possibly dating from the 70s.

According to the person I got it from there's a short (dumpy) King that goes with it.

Wonderful potter, I always loved going to his shop on Weymouth seafront as a child, it took me a few years of saving pocket money to afford these, entitled 'Knight Errant and Lady Courtsy' sadly he died a few years ago. He's one of the makers that inspired me to work with clay, very underrated, you can find pieces for £5, although the figures are more desirable.

Highly decorated jug - Len Stockley

Post by Greenie1689 on January 6th 2016, 4:41 pm

A small jug standing about 120mm tall.





The potter seems to have used as many forms of decoration as s/he could think of, but who is the potter?

Your assistance in identifying is much appreciated.

All the best,
Greenie

Are these not Christmassy? Is that a word? I have a theory that this is a chess set.

Interesting. The king and queen are rare but not uncommon. This is the first time I've seen the third one. I'm guessing it's a Bishop. No pawns have been seen, which should be relatively common, so I doubt it's a chess set, but, if the horseback riders are castles then maybe that was the original idea.

That is my thinking yes. It would make sense that people would buy the Kings and Queens the most. Bishops, Knights and Rooks would naturally be less common. Perhaps the riders are Knights so we need Rooks (Castles) and perhaps the smaller set as posted are the pawns. Another thing is if you kook at your queen posted earlier it the reverse of mine. Could this represent Black / White Pieces.... It's only a theory †Pondering

White Queen?

Yes, the horses/knights would be on the white side

So, if we're assuming these are all part of a chess set, which piece is this one?
