MM may refer to the year 2000. So possibly a commission to mark the new millennium.

I think it's a commission or gift, so a one off. The writing on the back may be a personal message to whoever received it.

I cant read the mark, but David Sharp would have been an apprentice at that stage, so I don't know if you'd be able to tell which ones were his.

It is the rye pottery sussex impressed mark. David Sharp used the D to denote it was thrown by him, but I am not sure about the date as the internet is not very giving about the early impressed marks and their dates. I vaguely recall reading that this was used between 1947-52ish?

Initially I thought that David Sharp might have been over enthusiastic, as his mark is D. However, denbydump (DD) is correct that DDD is Dennis Townsend. David Sharp was the first apprentice and was taken on in 1947 but Dennis started soon after so was also there from 1947. The Sussex mark was used until sometime in 1953.

He did but usually his work was decorated by paintresses in the "Potteries tradition".

So this beaker is similar to N's beaker and eshearm's tankard. When I picked it up I thought it was the decoration was a  little weak - pastels etc, but it's odd how a few marks on a base can make you go back and re-appraise something - or is that just me ? Does it seem different when you see the base? Does it go from weak to sweet?

At the Leach Pottery and other studio potteries where teams of people worked, individual potters where only allowed to put their personal seal on work after being there a considerable time and it being deemed that their work was of the required standard. However, at Rye the marks like the ones above were more of a quality control mechanism that required the apprentices to mark their work.

At this period I think the vast majority of work if not all of it would have been thrown and decorated by the same person. I do think the decoration is weak too, although not unpleasant, but it is to be expected on work by someone, who is just learning the trade.

Not sure about "weak", I have seen this pattern loads of times, always the same
colours, on vases, beakers, beakers squashed into fan-vases and wall-pockets.
It's a bit floral, (wonder if it actually had a name), rather than abstract, so never as
populr as the other designs.
