No , I think they are made to look really old , I mean they may have some age to them but not the medieval style they are purporting to be , the motto the tulip and the butterfly is by Isaac Watts 1674-1748

I suspect they're either new, made for reenactment societies, or c.50-60s, although if they were the latter one would expect to see a lot more of them around.
I vaguely recall someone selling slipware on ebay that they they'd made 40-odd years ago, and was now selling in their retirement. This may be something similar.

Agreed. In retrospect I don't think there's much call for Medieval slip/sgraffito decorated victorian cheese covers by reenactment societies. Laughter

Spotted another one recently, dated early 2000s
A long shot but also came across a Sheen Sinclair in the Marks book who trained at Aldermaston in the mid 70s and then potted in Sussex but no further information available

Could also be a long shot but there is a place called Sheen near Barnes/Richmond Surrey. I don't live far away and I am aware of various potters calling that part of the world home in the past.

William Lloyd is the son of Reg Lloyd (R. J. Lloyd) the painter and English slipware collector, so the style of pottery fits.

I don't think William is still making pots but I understand that he did for a long period and may have moved around. If my memory serves me correctly he was living near Charmouth in Dorset the last I knew.. I don't know of any connections with East Sheen in S. W. London or Sheen village in Derbyshire but, of course, the name Sheen Pottery might have a different derivation.
