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 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?

Little vase, monogrammed SHS - Stephen Smith

Post by Essenjay on May 27th 2017, 5:21 pm

8cm tall vase, simple hand-painted decoration in a David Sharp type blue.

Raised monogram twice SHS(?) in an oval. Pretty sure the mark has featured on here fairly recently but I have a memory like a sieve.
