It looks like Newman's Aller Pottery mark but it's in a circle, not a square. It's not in the Marks book

The bowl looks like Aller Pottery.

So are we leaning towards Aller using a, so far unrecorded, circular mark, or is the jury still out?

I have a few pieces of "Aller" stashed away somewhere, bought a long time ago, before the book.
I'm wondering if any have this mark, I really must dig them out sometime.

It's so close to the square surround it looks right, but I pick up what you are laying down 😎

The things in the other thread that were Ed's, I think, just didn't look like anything that I've seen made at Aller. They could have been made by someone other than the Newmans, of course. This bowl has the right stoneware, glazes and brushwork that I've seen on numerous pieces from Aller so............................................... I don't know about everything but this bowl looks right.

The pots on the other thread included one of mine. Some had a second mark which was also unidentified so I don't think the 'A' mark can be attributed to Aller until it is.

The BSPM book does show a circular "A" mark but wirh a dot under the A.

The Rice book shows 2 circular "A" marks, one with a dot and one without.

I think there are two A marks in question. This could well be Aller without the dot, but I don't think it's the same font as the one on the Aller? Thread

Yes, I think that other mark is an ongoing separate issue, but this one looks right,
and is not in BSPM.

Thanks everyone, rather interesting and one has to wonder the variations, perhaps there was some kind of split at the pottery or the impressing tool was broken. Could be any number of reasons I suppose
