Hello,
Picked this up recently-just love it!
No mark that I can see. Think it's fairly contemporary but it's quite accomplished-must be by someone who is known, surely?! Or they should be! Nuclear family figurine...no mark.Anyone recognise the style? 1f603
Any thoughts welcome, as always.
Thanks

I don’t recognise it I’m afraid but I love it too - like a modern day Staffordshire piece.

I think it's truely horrific, which makes me wonder if it maybe one of Jo Lester's earlier pieces.

The glaze colours remind me of Rye Pottery but not one of their usual designs. Maybe by one of their ex-employees

Well, I'm glad it stirs feelings one way or the other

Thanks-I agree-similar to Rye and modern takes on Staffordshire but no joy searching yet.

I'll look in to Jo Lester-not heard of him.

Doubt you'll find any images of his figures online, they are rare (though to be honest also near worthless), If I find time i'll try and dig up one of mine at some point.

There were a number of ladies making human and animal figurines in a similar clay and decoration in the 50s-80s. Just have to wait for one to turn up with a label
