er... I'm not sure. How can you tell? I've got fairly limited knowledge when it comes to manufacture?

I like the detail at the base of the handle where the potter has pinched it to join the body...

I thought the mark was quite unusual. Any thoughts/ideas?

Lovely. Cheers. Not that it really matters but is there any way to date it?

I just picked it up at a car boot and liked the simplicity of it...

it's down to experience,I have seen lots of wood fired pots,the wood firing gives the pot it's finish without the need for glazes

your pot is wood fired (I just checked)
