Can anyone say if this is a David Leach piece? It measures about 15cm across.

Looking at the glaze, it appears to be that which he used at the beginning of his time at Lowerdown when he used red earthenware. Although difficult to see the mark looks like L with a D sitting in it. Is it red earthenware?

It is red earthenware and when held in the light, I can just make out a D inside the L.

When using red earthenware (1956 - 1961) the L D mark seems to have been used all of the time (I can't be 100% certain but can't remember seeing the L+ mark on this early earthenware).

He did have assistants at the time.......................... but the mark is LD so it's fair to say it is by David Leach
