ID help on studio teapot - Dartington? - Elizabeth Saunders?

Post by jonbearwood on February 14th 2015, 10:20 am

Shape looks like Dartington but doesn't quite seem right.  There is a faint impressed mark where the handle joins the main body.  Bottom is unglazed and unmarked.  Any help appreciated.

the lid looks wrong and the colours are similar but not Dartington in my opinion

There are other Forum members who know more about Dartington Pottery than I do but the lid for me is the stumbling block to saying that it was made at Dartington.

I haven't seen that "knop" on Dartington pieces and the flared top where the lid fits looks unlike Dartington.

I had written the above before Dan's post but maybe by someone, who had worked there?

Looks like that m and dots mark of Elizabeth Saunders, Woburn Sands. It was a puzzle for a while on the forum and there are several examples of her brightly coloured pottery which were IDed but must still be in this group somewhere.

Puzzle for a while?

I know it's not my thing but I can't find any information about a potter of that name. Do you remember where the information came from, Naomi?
