I am confident that you will be able to identify the impressed mark on this jam pot.

Difficult to make out the mark. Can you describe it?

I believe it could be Bridgefoot Pottery?

Doesn't look like anything that I have seen by Ray Marshall, who ran Bridgefoot Pottery, and I have never seen him use brushwork.

Perhaps a pic of the full base with the mark not so enlarged will help. Looks to me like a capital B with the letter C linked underneath.

"Bridgefoot" may not be the word I was trying to remember, from what I remember it sounded similar though.

I'll keep thinking.

I think it's a BP monogram, I have a little vase somewhere by the same maker.

Stoneware Preserve Jar with Lid

Post by Marcusborra on June 16th 2014, 8:56 pm

Didn't finish with this one, perhaps another picture of the mark will help. Does anyone recognise it?

This pot was made in the late 70's early 80's at birkenhead park pottery :) I know this as i worked there as a apprentice in the 70's and the stamp is registered at the Williamson art gallery

Welcome Carla and thank you for the information. I notice that you are making pots under your own name these days.
