Lesson 1 - never say "should be an easy one".

It should be but I think that it was made in the 1950s and that wasn't a time when anyone was that interested in noting down studio pottery marks................... but someone may know.

Another example of this 'star trek' mark. I thought the FS was Frank Smith but not so sure now. It might be the FS that was paired with the JS mark (that had been attributed to John Solly) which is associated with the LJ mark which is pared with this star trek mark.

The 'Star Trek' mark looks to me to be a flying insect with dots at the wing-tips, a small moth, perhaps?

The tin glaze appears to be that which David Leach told me John Solly had given him the recipe for but, if he gave it to David, then he could have given it to numerous other potters.
