Fish Wife Royal Worcester Figurine – Stokes Croft China

Fish Wife Royal Worcester Figurine



One of Kay Poster’s favourite transfers are a 1960’s set of stylised fish. Here she has cut little fish from the big fish to create this highly decorative figure.

Royal Worcester China Figurines 

Our founder Chris Chalkley was a ceramics and glass marketeer back in the day.  He was in a unique position to see the full impact of globalisation when his suppliers in the potteries went bankrupt in the 80’s and 90’s.  Hating to see anything go to waste and realising what a precious part of our heritage was being destroyed, he salvaged kilns, equipment and unused transfers.

Amongst his acquisitions during this time were around fifty Royal Worcester bone china figurines.  These pieces are difficult to decorate in the Stokes Croft style so are only attempted when an artist has developed a strong idea and the skills to apply it.

The fascinating story of how and why these pieces exist, their incongruous beauty and the individual expression of the artist are the reason that they are the jewel in the Stokes Croft crown.
