Found this figure today, man on toilet reading a book. I've had plenty of Will Young figures but this one is different, maybe some other pottery? It sands about 5" (130mm) high. The base is solid and felt covered so no point showing it. have a look at the pics and thanks for any suggested makers.

I think it's by Toby King & family. The eyes are typical of their figurines

Thanks for the name Naomi, having looked at some of the items on the net I think the base on mine is different. The ones shown are stepped, mine is flat. One did have eyes very similar. Anyway I'm still looking, and Toby King and family are a good start.

The hedgehog on Etsy has exactly the same eyes but is simply marked Blue Moon England. I am struggling to find anything like the comic figure I have. I might have to peel the felt off and have a look.

Yes, Blue Moon was Toby King’s pottery
