Can anyone please kindly help with this mark on the bowl listed below. The mark in the centre looks like F D?

Many thanks

Ernest

Snail mark - Linda Kinsman Blake, Smailholm Pottery Empty Tin-Glazed Jug, acorn mark - Smailholm Pottery?

Post by r-and-f October 19th 2016, 11:12 am

A big, heavy earthenware jug, tin-glazed with fish decoration.  Has a slightly continental look (French? Spanish?) but the clay is browner than I would have expected (darker than it appears in the photo) and the acorn mark at the base of the handle looks as if it could be British.  But having said that, none of the acorn-type marks in the BSPM book seem to be a match.  All suggestions gratefully received.

My first thought was Spanish, or French, especially with that style of base. The only British potter I know with an acorn mark is Brenda Murray and it's not her usual mark. Andrew Mcgarva is out in France and makes similar pieces, but again not his nark; maybe a new potter?

Thank you Naomi, I'm sure you're correct. The mark looks different, but the style and decoration are spot-on. Now, I wonder what I did with the jug...?
