Latest 2 purchases from the well-known online auction site.
Both were advertised with the same listing-text except one turned out to be half the size of the other!! Next time I will request the sizes BEFORE purchasing lol Rolling Eyes

Seems a marmite thing to me. You can pick them up for under a fiver and sell them on ebay for £10-£20 but they're too quirky to be worth more than that.
There's a dealer who prices hers at £30-£40 at local fairs, but she never seems to sell any.

Prices overall have been rising, but many still go for hardly anything.

I expect this is partly due to people bidding on the odd one they like, rather than actual collectors. I think most of us collectors are tight! Big Laughter

I'd have to disagree about them being "too quirky", they are quirky but most people seem to like them.

Maybe it's just me, then. It's one of the few things I've not bothered with, even when I've seen them for 50p.

We have quite a few guests here and the IoW pieces are the only thing people tend to universally like Happy The higher value studio pieces I have mostly get funny looks Shock Big Laughter

I mainly collect the decorated dishes, but the small vases / jugs etc can look nice together in my opinion.

Joe (Jo) Lester - Isle of Wight and West of England Pottery  - Page 2 1_113

Mostly Island Pottery Studio - Joe Lester, but a couple Alum Bay - Joseph Lester and Totland Pottery - Kenneth Scotcher.

Much better pictures than they were listed with Excellent

I like them, had I known the orange one was a smaller version I may have bid Big Laughter

Out of interest if the one of the left a Ken Scotcher piece?

Not all by Joe Lester, but the majority of them are and they are all in his "Lester Style" of decoration or adapted from it.

Some of the pots in this picture are by:

Kenneth Scotcher
Donald Beckley
Joseph Lester (Joe's Son)
Martin Gilchrist
Jack Manning

Oh and a box of 1960's fireworks... with most of the contents Big Laughter Including a jumping jack geek

Oh dear, some other obsessive IOWters. I have many hundreds of pieces, from
Saunders/Scotcher/Reiley/Beckley/Lester/yarmouth/yellowsands/ etc Where do I start?

Anyway a nice Jo Lester plate 9.5 in diameter.

Well when I say hundreds, I really mean hundreds. Most boxed up somewhere, so
maybe just a few of the more unusual bigger bits, as most are the little pots and
dishes like you have already shown.

A Reilly plaque (of a cockerel, I think) went for a lot of money on ebay last week.  Shock admittedly it was very nice.
