Bretby, maybe? Early 20th Century would be my guess, but there are modern imports that look similar.

sorry guys , but no way is this the same as Cookiepops piece and I doubt very much if there are any in the garden centres either  Nuh-huh , I would estimate at least a 100yrs old and probably more .

I would agree Naomi , but ( there's always a but) Laughter I saw one like in the link in the states and it had the coloured top as well , also the pot on the link looks moulded and not sgrafitto if you save pic and make bigger , mine is hand thrown and is sgrafitto not a process worth doing for a few quid imo .

It may jut mean it's older. Chinese pots tend to be based on traditional forms; only the process of manufacture changes over the generations. However, they were copied (eg, Bretby, Burmantoffs) , so, yes, there's a chance it's more local.
