It was suggested by someone on here that I should buy it.................. but I don't really know who made it. Once it arrives let me know if the mark is any clearer.

I only spotted with 90 mins to run , and it just struck me as being subtle but extremely beautiful , spent the 90 mins trying to research but nothing , but it screams quality to me , but then what do i know!
I bought it purely for the above reasons if it does turn out to be by a well known or sought after potter all the better.

It was pointed out to me nearer the end and to be fair it was only because I had mentioned that I was going to bid on an "unknown pot" and the thought was that it might be that one. It wasn't and I got the one I wanted as well. It is very unusual, worth a punt if you liked it and could be a very good buy. Let's see if you can see any part of the impressed seal.

No idea who made it, but you got it for a good price in my opinion, regardless of maker. It's very well made and I expect sooner or later you'll ID it. Happy

Does anybody else think it looks like a toilet bowl without a lid ?

I thought it looked more like Captain Kirk's wash basin. Happy

It's one of those perfect, yet souless pieces I come across every so often. Invariably made by male potters.

If I were betting I'd probably guess it's a female potter Cheeky

Not Jon Middlemiss I would think. Have owned several of his, and they are all thin walled and wonderfully light. The piece above look like stoneware and fairly bulky.

It looks very thin and light to me, and has the same small polished bowl and wide rim as the one on Pinterest

From the photo and from experience eg, Elaine Dick’s work. I see no sign of it being thick or slab built; rather, it looks thrown, turned, cut and manipulated.
