Hi Pip seeing your first item has reminded me of a small Buchan my mum has - not sure what the number/references mean but underneath her's it says 256/5 m2m - 50 with a black painted letter P Buchan Portobello Scotland marke impressed into the base but not with the brown mark like yours.

Hi, if it's got the Portobello mark then I believe it's pre-1971 (that's apparently when they stopped using that mark). The pattern is appropriately called thistle - still in production nowadays.

My Mum used to work at Buchan's when it was in Portobello and was the chief decorator by the time the company moved to Crieff. The Portobello mark was still used after the move but I believe the later pieces had a Made In Scotland stamp that the older pieces don't have.

I'm happy to see there is still interest in the pottery as the factory was a huge part of my life when I was little.

The only pieces she would bring home were the slightly flawed ones that didn't pass their quality control. I have one bowl she did with the thistle pattern on it and a friend in Edinburgh found a casserole with the Hebridean pattern on it in an antique shop and bought it as a gift.
I'll post some pics later today.

Needless to say I treasure these pieces and hope to expand on them as the years go by.

Hi.

I have a Buchan bowl and wondered if anyone could tell me more about it. It is about 21cm in diameter.

This is a good site for info: http://www.studiopottery.com/cgi-bin/mp.cgi?item=31
There is a lot of late 20th Century wares out there, so you can still pick it up very cheaply in charity shops and flea markets.
