No, it's nothing to do with the Leach Pottery.

Not a shape made there plus the handle is not in the correct place for them and the mark is incorrect.

Boscean Pottery

I'll split it from the Leach St Ives thread

Saying it was "nothing to do with the Leach Pottery" above isn't entirely true as Scott Marshall, who started the Boscean Pottery, was an apprentice there. Also Richard Jenkins, who was his partner at Boscean, was at the Leach Pottery for a time as well (1959 -1961).

To add, taken over by Jacob Bodilly in 2008, but has now creased operation after Jacob moved on.

Jacob Bodilly has just said this mark is not that of Boscean Pottery . The pottery did not mark its pots, although Scott Marshall very occasionally used a personal SM mark on some of his pots.
