Looking through Yates-Owen book of marks it looks a little like Kevin de Choisy's mark, but I don't think it's his sort of decoration.

I was wondering if it could have any links to Cardew as there is a likeness in the mark there as well?

A link to Michael Cardew doesn't seem likely as the type of decoration isn't typical of Michael or any of the potters associated with him. Cardew did use stoneware and a big C as part of his mark but those are the only similarities.

Naomi is correct about Kevin de Choisy from the work of his that I've seen and as far as I am aware he has in recent years only used porcelain and earthenware. I'm not sure if he has ever used stoneware.

thank you pot-bellied amateur i like it as well. Just wish I could find out who the potter is!! I think I will try and get a better picture of the mark as It looks like GTF to me rather than CDE and see if it jogs any ones memories. Fingers crossed!

Couldn't find a similar G in the marks book either. Might mean it's Irish.
