Soil Hill, Halifax, salt pig

Could it be by Isaac Button?






Hello everyone, picked up this pot in a local junk shop and was wondering if it could be by Isaac Button or from his fathers era. It is stamped Soil Hill and from what I can gather from the internet Isaac didn't use a stamp, could it be a recent copy.  Many thanks Diane

Looks like the right glaze colour. I can read Soil Hill West Yorks on the stamp, but I can't read the word at the top. Presumably it was made shortly before the pottery closed?

That would make sense. Possibly they started using a stamp to comply with export rules which meant the place of origin had to be stated on the item.
