Yes, an interesting pot, but I was only interested in the mark and the dealer was happy for me to take a few photos.

He also had this piece, which he said was also by Arthur Griffiths, but it doesn't have a mark, so I can't be 100% sure. Tbh, it looked like Purbeck when I first saw it, but it does have similarities to the piece above.

From here, the two pieces don't look like the same potter , the unmarked one doesn't look like any purbeck iv'e had in the past , it's an interesting shape but not one that purbeck is known for , I hadn't heard of Griffiths before but I see he was at the Leach pottery 1953-54, Then Head of ceramics at Loughborough .

They are a similar shape and the glaze inside was the same. It was the stoneware-like glaze inside the second pot and in the hole that made it look like  Purbeck from a distance .

He worked at the Crowan Pottery before he went to St Ives and wrote an account of his time there:
