Slipware Tankard Impressed Mark JH

Post by RoyJ99 on October 14th 2016, 8:12 pm

Hi folks. Picked up this lovely slip trailed tankard today, impressed mark looks like JH or IH, reminds me of Joyce Haynes mark, wondering if it's a Scottish potter as I'm based close to Edinburgh and I've seen a few pieces with this mark over the last couple of years.

Thanks

Roy

I'm afraid it's that fH mark again. I have some peices, and there are several on here.
We will know one day, but un-Id'd at the moment.

Thanks Denby, hadn't thought of fH, having looked at the other posts with this mark wondering if somewhere in southern Scotland is where they are being produced.

It could be a sheperd's crook?
Lots of these around.

Yes, I'm forever tripping over the buggers. Damned careless shepherds should take better care of them.

Ha, we need a thread to offer a reward, Ala crimewatch, for info on these marks.
Someone out there knows something!
Were you there when the potter made this piece?

I saw this tankard in the charity shop in Edinburgh and forced myself not to buy it because it would only have set me off again agonising about who this mystery potter is. I already have several of his (her?) pieces in the house to taunt me. A Scottish or Northern England location has been suggested in the past, but our combined efforts still don't seem to have solved the riddle.
