I can't recall seeing this actual floral pattern before, similar ones but not this one. They tended to name them Floral A, Floral B etc. but it doesn't look like any of the patterns Floral A to Floral G. I think it might pre-date that nomenclature.

I've seen a few pin dishes with it on. Not my favourite pattern. I thought it was one of their early ones. May be one of Wally Cole's?

OK Jerry I will be impressed if you can answer this; Why is there a female symbol in the base mark? Shrugs

I'va always called it the lightship mark, but the book says it represents Earth and Water.

Love the colours on this piece Brin although I am not too keen on the shape. Even so a very nice piece.
It's not one of the shapes I have in my Rye collection but I have seen similar on that auction site Happy

The date's correct, Brin.

As far as I am concerned, he did his best stuff at the Rye and Cinque Port potteries before he branched out on his own in 1964.

Came across this piece, which also has a black ink stamp rather than a hand written mark. That was a commission for Bayer, so it's possible this was also a commission.

For further information, such as a date for the gorilla, it's worth contacting the pottery which is still in operation

The shape looks similar to one of the miniature vases on the front of Harry Lyon's New Century exhibition "Rye Pottery in the Fifties" catalogue. The exhibition was held during April 1996. I know many of them weren't marked because the seal wouldn't fit on the base.

So I agree with DD - Rye Pottery late 1940s and likely to have been thrown by Edwin Twort.

Twort had worked at the Belle Vue Pottery that had been on the site of the Rye Pottery and had closed in 1939. He had a bit of experience having started working at Belle Vue when he was 12 and been there 63 years.

It is impossible to be 100% certain of course, as I wasn't around back then.

The advantage back in 1996 was that Wally Cole was still alive and was able to attribute unmarked items. I remember going to the PV and later meeting him in Rye and, although quite frail by then, he was still very good at providing information and remembering the past.
