I've seen similar slipware pieces with this mark on eBay attributed to Douglas Phillips, Yeovil

It looks like his early mark (1968-76) when he was making earthenware as well as stoneware so it fits. I haven't knowingly seen any so can't be certain but he is still around, so you might be able to get him to confirm 100%.

From 1977 he has only made stoneware.

I emailed Douglas Phillips about the plate. He replied and said that it is his plate, and a fairly early one, made at his first pottery at Ridge near Chard, Somerset. He goes on to say that the clay was from Donyatt, which he dug himself. He only made this earthenware '69-'71, after the large oil fired kiln he built in 1968 proved not to go to stoneware temperatures. In 1971 he built a smaller oil kiln that did go to high temperatures so went back to making stoneware pots.
He said there probably aren't too many of these plates around.

Thank you Naomi and SP for very accurate info!

The best bit is that you contacted him and got information that I suspect isn't written down elsewhere........... so thank you for doing that and sharing it with us.
