Decanter marked Wp - Wilan / Anvil Pottery?

Pottery decanter. Bought from a Welsh pottery in the 70s by my parents but we've forgotten the potter.

I saw a large flagon with this mark in an antique shop attributed to Winchcombe (and priced accordingly!). I knew it wasn't. I looked it up and concluded it was probably Wilan Pottery, John Hughes, Denbighshire. Maybe?

That's possible, thanks. Right place (we were on holiday in Snowdonia at the time), although the mark is a little different from the one in Yates-Owen

It's also called Anvil Pottery. From their website -

Some of our pots are stamped with an ‘anvil’ on the base. Mostly, these were made by partner John Hughes (now retired). Allan Hughes has rarely used the mark, preferring the role of an ‘anonymous potter’.
