Unmarked figure; I think they’re holding a book (not a frog as first thought) . I’m assuming it’s a hobby potter but just checking it’s not by a well known pottery like Briglin or Chelsea

Thanks :) Tbh, at first sight I though it was a Chorister but couldn’t work out why they’d be wearing a rain hat! Happy

It is wacky and I like it.
My memory is not one of my strongest points, but many moons ago I owned a couple of Chelsea figures, barristers if I remember correctly. Your figure reminds me of those.

The only difference that strikes me is that my two (main body black, faces...white) were more darkly glazed than yours, more black, though it may be that your picture has come out lighter.
In terms of style, they were very similar.
Good luck.

Edited to say it’s a chorister holding a book, not a frog. I don’t recognise the outfit. Catholic or Foreign, maybe?

I suppose if it is difficult to tell the difference between a frog and a book the modelling isn't that good? Laughter

More my eyesight and the angle of the photo. Looking at the figure instead, its clearer Laughter

It's far too heavily potted for Chelsea, as Dan says, Maybe look to scandi.
22 may have said if he thought it could be Briglin.
That costume could be a clue.
