HI, is anyone familiar with the maker's mark VK (it could be VR but I think most likely a K).
Thanks in advance, Shane...

I've come across this mark before but not IDed it yet. The other one was a bit clearer and seemed to be SHK or SHS mark

I've just bought a couple of pieces with this mark at a car boot sale. One is a jug with the same pattern as the vase in the previous post, and the other a vase, rather differently decorated. The mark on both is impressed onto an applied circle of clay.

Excellent find. But he seems to have a rather low profile online. Would he be half of the Steve and Sandra Smith of Leicester mentioned as showing stoneware at various craft fairs?

Not come across them before. Still doesn't explain the H or double H in the middle of the mark
