I've had a pot with these marks before and never got to the bottom of it. The ST looks much like Sidney Tustins mark at Winchcombe but I have never seen anything about him working elsewhere. The Taena pottery is still going although under different ownership now, maybe they may be able to give you some info.

Here's a jug with the same pottery mark but a different potter's initials FJ. I had thought it was Taena, but not so sure now.

Hannah McAndrew is a slipware potter living in Scotland. She might know.

I have one too! An FJ one as well. I thought it was Taena given the glossy glaze but you guys have sowed a seed of doubt in my mind!

That's weird. You must have gone into that charity shop this afternoon shortly after I came out. I decided not to buy the pot because our collective inability to identify the potter has been driving me nuts!

Really? In Edinburgh?

That is strange.

I emailed pictures of my pot to Hannah McAndrew today asking if she was able to shed any light on the subject

"Hi Roy,

It's a Taena pot I think, the pottery still exists and is still making slipware. Other than that I don't know who made it I'm afraid.

I hope that you find out.
best wishes,
Hannah"

Clearly she thought the same as most of us on here. It's just a shame that the potters currently working at the Taena pottery disagree.
