Vase with sgraffito decoration, marked with the anvil, plus paper label.
Although still in operation, this points to it being a vintage piece.

From their website www.anvilpottery.co.uk =

Some of our pots are stamped with an ‘anvil’ on the base. Mostly, these were made by partner John Hughes (now retired)

aka Anvil Pottery

From their website -

Some of our pots are stamped with an ‘anvil’ on the base. Mostly, these were made by partner John Hughes (now retired). Allan Hughes has rarely used the mark, preferring the role of an ‘anonymous potter’.

I've had this a while in general use and just spotted the mark on the web. Is it Wilan Pottery?

Thanks for confirming Naomi, really do appreciate having your knowledge and opinion on hand. Kept meaning to id this, just been on the back burner as many are. I'm sure you've got hundreds of mystery marks simmering along.
