Legend Designs, Polperro, Cornwall

I can find nothing mentioned about them, but they seem to have made pottery 'wizards' very similar to those made by early Clare Craft.
So far I've only seen their label on small wizards/folk. Some stood on a flat base, some standing on their own 2 feet, lying down, a shelf sitter, and one a clock with 2 figures applied to a 'tree stump'.

The main difference I can see to Clare Craft is their hats. These seem to have short hats. Very unlike the long pointed hats on the Clare Craft wizards.
This should be a good guide to ID any without labels.

As I mentioned on another post about Clare Craft Like wizards.

I wonder if these are by an ex Clare Craft worker? and with the larger ones (by whoever) having what looks to a PH back stamp, I wonder if there is any connection with Paula Humphris? - probably not!

As this was a pottery in Polperro, is Christian Robinson (son of Frank - Polperro Pottery) still on the forum?
Could a Mod possibly ask him if he knows anything about Legend Designs?

Thanks to 2 Ebayers for permission to post their photo's.
Hope it's ok to credit them?

He sold 2 of them. One didn't have a label, but it looks right and usefully, shows some base marks which would have been hidden.
