Hi,i'm fairly sure this is an earlier Gwynn Hanssen mark from her work in England but hard to find.Does any have any more information?
It is large and heavy,almost 4 kilos.

The shape fits her style but I haven't seen any of her work with that mark and it isn't the early mark shown in books.

I haven't seen much of her work to be honest so couldn't say one way or the other.

The mark for Gwyn Hanssen I've seen have all been circles; no H in the middle. I've seen this mark before and tried to Id it but no luck yet.

That is intriguing. Obviously others thought it was kosher as it went for a not inconsiderable 460. I've got a Wenford Bridge piece of hers. and its definitely the O with the Wenford Bridge mark. I see this one is attributed to 1970. She would probably have been working in France then.
A quote from her obituary in the Guardian. 'In 1960 she and her husband, Louis Hanssen, set up a workshop in a basement in Notting Hill, London, where she produced well crafted tablewares for outlets including Heal's and Primavera, and she made useful contact with the potter Lucie Rie, which helped to inject a crisp modernity into her work.'
I wonder if is from that period, as it does quite a nice crisp piece of work. The LG Would also coincide with the marriage and working partnership with Louis Hannsen.
