Stocktons of Wellington New Zealand were retailers of Luce Rie and probably sold most outside England at the time
Stocktons operated from 1952 to 1965 in Wellington New Zealand
Harry Sereson and John Bridgood owned it. From 1956 to 1965 Wilf Wright and the Wright family owned it (Lucie Rie pottery was also sold from
Le Cadeau on Lambton Quay, Wellington which sold jewelry and some ceramics.)"Wilf Wright first became interested in pottery by the direct contact with pots by overseas artists afforded by operating the craft shop Stocktons, in Woodward Street, Wellington from 1956 to 1965. During this time he was also influenced by the work of his friends Helen Mason, Terry Barrow, and Barry Brickell. He attended adult education classes under Doreen Blumhardt and worked with English potter, the late John Chappell. He has worked with his wife Janet to establish a country pottery at Reikorangi, Waikanae. They feel privileged to be able to live and work in a country environment." - Johann, d 1996 : Papers relating to his business (see the image papers from teh time - these papers are not included)
Date: [1950-1986] By: Frankl, Johann, d 1996; Frankl, Olga, 1907-1991 Comprises correspondence, financial records, tax returns (including descriptions of overseas travel to buy goods), catalogues of stock sought and carried, stock sold, wages books and other papers relating to Frankl and his wife, Olga's, business, The Cadeau, in Wellington, ... Rie, Lucie, fl 1964 Ref:MS-Papers-5925-4 ... correspondence with Lucie Rie (London); ... " ... The international scope of Rie’s distribution from very early on is striking. In the 1950s Rie was sending substantial orders to Wellington in New Zealand (see Fig.21). It seems likely that this grew up through the connection of Ernst Plischke who worked in New Zealand through the 1940s. Also after the war the British Council organised several touring exhibitions of British products to North America which brought Rie business from across the USA and Canada.[46] Georg Jensen was another outlet for her pots in New York in the 1950s and in later decades the Graham Gallery in this city was a regular client. From the 1970s Rie made pots for individuals from Venezuela, South Africa, Australia, Israel, and France as well as many customers in North America.
Fig.21 Letter and order from John offerwill of Stockton's in Wellington, New Zealand, 31.5.1954Typewritten on airmail stationary printed with the letterhead ‘Stockton’s contemporary furniture, fittings and accessories’ in brown 25.5 x 19.5 cm(w) Crafts Study Centre, Farnham2002.26.231.2.2a-b ... The few photographs in the Archive showing the Ries in their Vienna apartment have been published several times.[15] The fitted wooden shelving of this interior was designed for Lucie Rie by Ernst Plischke, a young modernist architect.[16] The potter initially bought a chair from Plischke but they established a strong rapport, and he was commissioned to furnish the whole apartment.[17] Rie was so attached to the ensemble that after she reached England she had it shipped and transplanted into Albion Mews.[18] Plischke left Vienna in 1929 for the USA, and worked in New Zealand from 1939 before returning to Austria in the 1950s. A few surviving letters in the Archive attest to the lively and enduring nature of their friendship.[19] " -
