Good afternoon,
Does anybody recognise the impressed pottery or potters marks on this 1960's Pierced Pottery Lamp Base.
There are three impressed marks, one is harder to see than the others but I have done my best to photo them.
Hope somebody can help.
Thank you,
Julian.

...it could be a guy named Mac (Malcolm) Small. It looks very much like his work... Wellington Mill Pottery, Wellington, Herefordshire.
you probably won't find Mac Small's work documented...he didn't run in those circles...The piece you showed, however looks a lot like Wellington Mill lamps...Just to be clear...I actually worked there in 1977-78...so...although I can't be sure...it is very similar...Interestingly, we also made pots like the Sheila Fournier pieces shown [see Worthpoint link below]...i think cullet was used for the glass pooling....
I really think the lamp is a Wellington Mill Pot (and not a Sheila Fournier....her work was very delicate.)...the one's we made were also circular. It has been almost forty years....but I would bet on it...Mac Small died in the 90s...his partner Rose Thomas sold the mill..

Also this one

Hi all,

Does anyone recognise any of these marks? Not sure why there are 3.

Many thanks.

I’ve seen other pieces, stamped Made In England. Often misattributed to Sheila Fournier. A potter said they were more likely to have been made by Mac Small at Wellington Mill Pottery in the 50s or 60s. He died in the 90s and his partner Rose Thomas sold the mill.

This is definitely a Mac Small/Rose Thomas piece. The one mark is a W over an M. The other mark was often MS (Mac Small) or RT (Rose Thomas). I watched them making some of these at Wellington Mill in the village of Wellington 4 miles north of Hereford.

The mark "Wellington Mill Herefordshire", and occasionally "Hand made in England" were only put on items which were intended for export. At one point they had a stall at Selfridges in Oxford Street.
