I thought it might be Lucie Rie, but the mark does not look like what I have seen before.

The picture of your mark isn't very clear but is it the one below?

If it is then it is Eileen Lewenstein after she moved from London to work down in Hove (by the sea) in 1976. Can't say that I have seen anything like your bowl by her before.

Hi,
Was wondering if anyone could help with this lovely vase. Thought at first it was an art pottery piece by someone for Royal Copenhagen, but only 2 waves, but maybe 3rd lost in impressed mark? Still possibly Scandinavian, can't find in my british potters marks book. It is about 6" high, and marks look like 'ET' not the alien unfortunately as that would be impressive.  Laughter  Many thanks.

Wow, thanks Davee, that's very quick, been looking for a couple of days online and couldn't get anywhere. Just looked up some of her stuff and like it, she seemed quite important, Ceramic review etc. Still plenty of gaps in my knowledge and always more stuff out there. Cheers!

Eileen was best know as co-founding the The Ceramic Review, first published in 1970 and for also co-founding Briglin Pottery in 1948 (as Eileen Mawson) along with Brigitte Goldschmidt (later known as Brigitte Appleby). Eileen departed Briglin in after ten years in 1959 and continued he career on her own producing sculptural individual pieces often in porcelain.


  • Early Briglin pieces many be marked EL by hand inscribed sometimes with date
    EL brushed - from 1959 sometimes with date
    E.L. impressed - 1959 to 1975
    E.L. With wave under impressed post 1976
