Marbled clay candlestick - Sussex pottery, Benjamin Ware and Sons

Old or new? Scottish or student?
Not sure about this. I've seen some marbled clay pieces that were made in Scotland up until the first half of the 20th century, and this clay is similar in colour, but it's saying 'rustic' and, despite the crazing, 'not very old/too clean', and at some point someone's stuck padded feet on, all of which in my book equates to 'student piece'.

It's quite complex for a student piece. However, from what you say it was probably made fairly recently by an experienced potter with the intention to looking like or being taken for an earlier piece of country pottery.

Cheers. We have the Sealed Knot reinactment society nearby so it might be one if theirs.

Came across an agateware (marbled clay) beaker and saucer in lead glaze by Benjamin Ware and Sons, Uckfield, 1890s. Wondering if this is a possible piece too.
