Bristow Pottery while they were at Bonchruch (1961-1967 as I understand it).

Is that Bristow linked to the Malta Bristow, as there were other Maltese BP pieces next to this piece in the sale?

Yes, Tony Bristow did move to Malta for a while, due to business incentives offered by the Government of Malta.

That said, I think production of "Bristow Pottery" continued in Malta after Tony Bristow moved back to the IoW.

Can anyone read this signature and identify it for me, please?





It stands about 14cm tall.

Thank you,
Greenie

I can't read it, but the decoration looks similar to this pottery -

Again, thanks Naomi for the lead.

It's Andrew Bristow, Bonchurch Pottery, Isle of Wight.

An (almost) identical signature on another, similarly decorated pot
