Welcome to the Forum, Heather, and let's hope someone will be able to assist.

There is already a thread about Len Stockley here at

https://www.20thcenturyforum.com/t4378p15-leonard-stockley-weymouth

but nothing about the figures you have. However, there are a few other figures shown.

Horseman went on ebay recently - too hot for me unfortunately :(

I did get this lovely plate - I like the little feet of the lizard(?)

Leonard Stockley (Weymouth) - Page 2 Empty Highly decorated jug - Len Stockley

A small jug standing about 120mm tall.

The potter seems to have used as many forms of decoration as s/he could think of, but who is the potter?

Your assistance in identifying is much appreciated.

All the best,

Leonard Stockley (Weymouth) - Page 2 Empty Len Stockley Fishermen figures

heatherafc wrote:Hello
I am looking for information on Len Stockley (Weymouth) fishermen figures. I have a collection at home in Spain (hence no photos posted). I cannot find any info on the iternet about them. I bought them in the 80,s and 90,s in the little studio opposite Weymouth Beach.
I have just recently returned there and the shop is gone and read that sadly Len Stockley had died in 2013. I would love to know if anyone has a collection of these figures and photos please. I would be interested in finding out how many different fishermen figures he made. Thanks in advance.

I have only just come across your query.  I have a collection of about twenty Len Stockley figures, half of which are fishermen; the others are what I call  "fisherman's wives", "local Yokels" and "men of the road.  I don't know much about Len Stockley or the Weymouth Pottery.  I bought most of my figures in the 1980s from a flower shop / gift shop in Corfe Castle or a souvenir shop at Lulworth Cove.  Are you still interested in photographs?

Are these not Christmassy? Is that a word? I have a theory that this is a chess set.

Interesting. The king and queen are rare but not uncommon. This is the first time I've seen the third one. I'm guessing it's a Bishop. No pawns have been seen, which should be relatively common, so I doubt it's a chess set, but, if the horseback riders are castles then maybe that was the original idea.

That is my thinking yes. It would make sense that people would buy the Kings and Queens the most. Bishops, Knights and Rooks would naturally be less common. Perhaps the riders are Knights so we need Rooks (Castles) and perhaps the smaller set as posted are the pawns. Another thing is if you kook at your queen posted earlier it the reverse of mine. Could this represent Black / White Pieces.... It's only a theory  Pondering

White Queen?

So, if we're assuming these are all part of a chess set, which piece is this one?

Yes that link would be a WHITE King and Queen  Excellent

I'm not saying everything he sold was part of a chess set or the same set, just that in the distant past it might have been part of the idea. Obviously there seems to be a lot more kings and queens about but that only natural. People only buy one or two and they are the most popular.

As I see it, we have found the King, Queen, Bishop, Knights, Rook and Pawn.
