This has been a mystery mark for a while and sometimes attributed to Vellow on eBay but it's not one of the marks in the BSPM book so I'm going to move it to ID my pottery until it's confirmed one way or another

I just got this email from David...

Sorry Graham but I didn't make either.  There are a few floating around on the web that say there are from here
but aren't.  Mine are stamped with Vellow (w!) and Somerset plus the workshop mark.


This begs the question: Who did make them?

I've come across a few. Unfortunately none with a label!

So David says No. The clear marks on his thread are pretty conclusive.

I have have some of these bits in my hand before, wondering what they were,
often in that speckled oatmeal glaze.

We must be down to a YV or a VY, both uncommon letters for names.
Vera, Victor/Victoria, Vernon, Yolande ???

Or, maybe a place name would more likely eg
Yare valley, or Vale of York....
