Langley pottery was a name used by Lovatt & Lovatt near Nottingham. This particular mark was used 1931-62. The style looks somewhat 1930's, but may well have been produced postwar as well for a while. The pottery was taken over by Joseph Bourne (DENBY) in 1959.

Just one of the many un-named patterns/shapes/glazes that were produced in the 1930s

Reality is of course, that the UK pottery industry between the wars was still huge. There were a lot of potteries producing many different designs in very large amounts of varying quality.

A most unusual medium Jardiniere. Almost a carved snakeskin design. Again will be
from the 1880s. Just a couple of impressed letters underneath.

I just did some reading up in the Langley book.
I have had bits of "Sapphire" (blue) in the past, and recall the top of the items started
off with another colour at the top, flowing down into the electric-type blue on the body.

"Marlborough Ware" was introduced in 1931, with variations of "Sapphire" (blue),
"Rosslyn " (red) and "Mavis" (green).

Unfortunately there are no pictures of any of these in the book, however looking
on another factory pattern sheet there is an image of this jug, shape 11986.

So by deduction, I reckon it's a Langley Mill "Rosslyn" jug from the 1930s.

A pretty little Fern pot, carved and decorated. Many numbers underneath for
turner/shape/size/colour etc and a feint "Leaning Langley" mark. (1891-1901).
