A nicely made pot, very similar to Briglin.
Impressed just TP, not mentioned in the marks book.

A nice display. It's definitely an underrated pottery.
Lots of similarities to Briglin, in the shapes and decoration,
but always in this rather monochrome colour.

Lovely display. There was a similar bottle vase on eBay for a few weeks which I was sure was Briglin but now Iím wondering if it was Tenby

Not that I know of. But looking at that group, the shapes look very familiar. The three on the left are very Briglinesque if that's a word. But it's not unusual, I'm still surprised by all the Aldermaston potters who after leaving continue to make tin glazed earthenware as if it's the only form of pottery there is... and with brushed decoration. My guess would be one of the ex Briglin potters, there was a lot of them. Annoyingly every search on Chrome thinks I'm after Denby! Who did run Tenby?

The group made me look twice, thanks David.

Tenby Pottery was run by Boo and Tony Markes. A personal collection of Tenby Pottery was featured on an episode of Antiques Roadshow at Pembroke Castle last year I think.

Oh sorry, forgot to mention, all pieces are marked simply 'Tenby Pottery'.
