Any ID suggestions please brown jug anchor mark

Would anybody have any idea of origin of this small jug. It is clearly marked with an anchor. Alongside the anchor mark there appear to be 2 more impressed marks. These look,to my untrained eye, to possibly read DAVE and 197? All suggestions welcome, thanks John

Well spotted Dan. On closer inspection I believe the 2nd mark to read St Ives not Dave which is actually much more likely thinking about it. I had considered Buchanan but only had the Hayle mark which didn't look right. I guess he moved to St Ives at some point. Thanks again John

John Buchanan, Anchor Pottery

Post by NaomiM on April 1st 2013, 8:03 pm

Very small jug from the Anchor Pottery, St Ives. Originally started by John Buchanan in Hayle, Cornwall in 1966, it moved to St Ives in 1971.

Here's the set of Anchor pottery in my shop last week. Even reduced it because there just doesn't seem to be a market for studio pottery in Portsmouth.

I tend to try and avoid , teapots , coffee pots , tureens lidded pots and the like , not because they aren't well made or look fine but simply because they are very hard to make much money on .
