Slip cast. Markings like that on a slipcast piece points to a home painting kit or student/hobby potter piece.

Thank you. I still kind of like it, especially if the person has taken the trouble to date it.

A date is usually a dead give away that it's by a hobby potter (at least in the UK. In the US it's far more common). A professional potter, producing hundreds of pots a week is not going to have time to date them, although some, like Aldermaston, do use a year code.
