The mark looks like that used by Jack Kenny, a pupil of Geoffrey Whiting, at his Seasalter Pottery. The glaze looks OK too but the clay is lighter than the pieces of his work that I have.

Jack seems to have disappeared or I would ask him if it was his.

Might be Paul Sullivan. I've come across a miniature vase with an S and dot stamp, that was Id-ed as such - google PAUL SULLIVAN MINIATURE STUDIO POTTERY VASE to see it.

The colour of the stoneware used for the Paul Sullivan vase that Naomi has pointed out looks a similar colour to your vase but yours isn't cut from the wheel in the same way and the mark on yours doesn't match any of his marks.

Does the S of the impressed mark have a dot either side?

Then it's not Jack Kenny's mark either so we are back to square one.

Not convinced. The Stalham mark has a very bold serif on the lower part of the letter.

I think itís there, but thereís a fingernail print on the lower corner, and a finger print slightly squashing the upper half of the S -
