The nearest match I have found in the book is Ken and Janet Pook, but have not found an image with their work Shrugs

The glaze looks very like St Agnes Pottery.

I love the description of the mark as a "stylised pook". Cheeky

Tony Gant vase? - Ken & Janet Pook, Scotland

Post by NaomiM on Mon Jul 20, 2015 9:37 pm

Unmarked Vase. Seems to be Tony Gant's style of decoration, with the band round the middle,  but maybe not his usual clay.

Not his. A few years ago I saw a couple of pieces in a charity shop that were similar and had a sticky label with the potter's details............. but I didn't bother to note her name.

Believe it's by a husband and wife who run (or did) a pottery in or around Shropshire.

Can't recall their names though.
