Could these goblets possibly be Wye Valley

I would be grateful if somebody could confirm where ever these goblets are Wye Valley pieces.

Although the mark looks like that shown in various books, the work that Lewis Groves did there was slip trailed earthenware, which this is not.

The mark looks right, but, as Studio-Pots says, the clay is wrong. Unless you know for sure that it came from the UK, it's more likely to be Australian. You could try asking on the Australian Pottery Group on Facebook.

Thanks, they are one of our mysteries here, and this was the closest possibility mark wise. NaomiM, I was born in Hampshire, Crondall and grew up in Dogmersfield ring any bells Colin

The goblets look very well made, but a mark like that on a British piece usually implies a hobby potter. Such marks are more common on professional studio pottery from Australia and America, though, which points to an Australian potter.
