10 inches high, lovely ash glaze that shows up well in sunlight, maroon interior.

Does anyone recognise the potter's seal? Looks like JD ot DJ.

Here are 2 made after he left Winchcombe:

Dear All,

Donald (Don) Jones Empty Small vase, DJ mark - Don Jones

First thank you for creating such a great forum and two for allowing me to join. I've been collecting Studio Pottery for over 20 years, have the identification books but have a few pieces I've never been able to identify. When I started collecting forums like this didnt exist so identification for a lover of pottery and not an expert was very difficult.

Anyway to my first pot. It does have a mark and is beautifully made and about 2 3/4" tall. Apologies if the images arent great been a while since I did this.

Thank you in advance

Adam

Wow, thank you so much for your help Naomi. Very speedy too. I have 5 or 6 pots in my collection that are unknown to me either marked or glaze filled that I've never been able to identify so this is just already such a fabulous place. Thank you again

We dont have a limit on posts, but some can take a while to ID if it's not a mark we've come across before or it's one of our long term mysteries. We just have to wait for one to turn up with a label.

I want to see every pot you own Adam, lot's of members come here for the fun of identifying mystery pots as their houses are so full. they rarely buy pottery
