Excellent, thank you Martyn. I can see now that the mark is tilted 45 degrees to the left, the A becomes a bit more apparent when you straighten it up.

Here's a link I just found http://www.cornishceramics.com/palanbrough.htm

Would I be right in assuming this is the same Alan Brough who was throwing for Maggi at Celtic Pottery for a while ? That link makes no mention of it.

I am not 100% sure this vase in by Alan, but it looks right. Here is the only painted mark I've seen: http://www.studiopottery.com/cgi-bin/pp.cgi?item=6380
He signed his pieces with a stamp signature in most cases. Unless this is by someone else?

It doesn't look like any pot of Alan Brough's that I have seen and all of the ones that I have seen have had an impressed seal. It could be though but I would need more convincing.

Amazing coincidence I say this piece and realised a similar mark on one of my pots. Mine looks like the one on the studio pottery site, it has a kick under the "B" but remarkably similar, hope this helps

I've seen several pots on ebay with a written AB mark attributed to Alan Brough. I know we should take ebay attributions with a pinch of salt, but it does look very similar to the monogram on the tile on StudioPottery

Yes, the mark from the StudioPottery site is really similar, that's what made me think it's Alan's pot. However as studio-pots mentioned the seal mark would be more convincing. Great stuff Clara, it looks like we all can find something useful on this forum  Happy

studiopottery.com is not always a reliable source of information either, there are errors on the site (I'm not saying this is one, I don't know), if you contact them about incorrect information you do not get any reply.

I'm wondering if it's AW - maybe a variation of Alan Ward's mark

They are not the only ones  Happy  I have recently contacted Mark Hill about one mistake in his book, he never bothered to write back, oh well it's good it's 21st century and we can all share information.

Interesting lead Naomi, I have found some items on ebay with AW's mark. They do look similar.

Porcelain yunomi - Alan Brough

Post by denbydump on August 11th 2014, 10:03 pm

Nicely made porcelain goblet, the mark is glazed over, but is clearly AB, not BB back-to-back.

Alan Brough?

Looks like a Yunomi?

Thanks Potty, Had a look at some marks on studiopottery.com and there are a couple
the same. He used so many variations of AB in squares etc.
I'd given up on that one, as that mark is not in the book, or that he worked in porcelain,
which is what I feel it is.
cheers.

I think that he only used porcelain towards the end of his life but the decoration is really the give away.

Because of the way that the images on the site are behaving at the moment, I haven't been able to see the seal but the glaze splash "shouts" Alan Brough.
