R is probably the pottery, and TM the potter's monogram.

Michael Tovey, Rowlstone Pottery Pontilas - there's one with a label on the Odds and Sods thread.

Here's a bowl with both mark and label which came as part of a lot at auction yesterday.

Hi guys
Just an update to your long conversation. Michael Tovey (1930-1991) (my dad) set up Rowlestone Church Pottery when he retired. He had been an art and ceramics teacher all his life. Most of his pots were practical as well as beautiful. The oak leaf was his design of choice, as well as dragons and birds. His work seems to be better known now than when he was alive. He would be really pleased that his work was appreciated.
Best wishes.
