I see a lot of the lustre pieces markes "10A" what does that mean?

When you say W & WA are glaze codes do you mean relating to how long they should be fired?

Example - I have a piece marked 10A WA 92 (then ACS under)

I think they relate to the particular chemical composition of the glaze or lustre.

I'll move it into the Aldermaston Pottery thread. Does it have a mark on the back?

Two Alan Caiger Smith goblets and a bowl. I've had these in my collection for about 18 years

Another commemorative beaker with lion and unicorn, made to mark the Queen's golden jubilee in 2002. This time with Ursula Waechter's mark

Aldermaston goblet. Alan Caiger-Smith or Geoffrey Eastop's mark? Three dots for 1963

Can't help thinking the mark is a bit angular for Caiger-Smith

It compares quite well to others in this thread, the ticks on the A are characteristic.
Also most items that have a date cypher, seem to be by ACS.

I think posters on this thread have just assumed it's Caiger-Smith's mark. It's not one of the examples in the Marks book

The ACS mark does change over time but it stands out as completely different than all the others. It's nearly always painted very carefully and has many more brush strokes and flicks. That table of marks does not do it justice.

FIVE ACS goblets

There are the extra tall ones - the brown one is 200mm for people who drink a LOT of wine :) (other two 180mm posted before)

That last photo - of the x3 I'm pleased with that. 200mm is a big goblet - I've seen those Rye ones but these ones are unusual IMO , all early date mark

Laurence McGowan used an N date mark for 1989 according to the table Shrugs But that was a date mark and he left in 79 so does not seem right.

No, there doesn't seem to be an N on the list. The A is Aldermaston. Nick Caiger-Smith uses an N, maybe an early one of his?

Yes, the design is called an Owl because it looks like an owl's head and body
