I think I have something with this mark somewhere. The same mark is posted on Ceramike - http://www.ceramike.com/UFOpots.asp - search for "bow tie".

I've seen one on the Ceramike website with this mark attributed to BW Pottery, Byfield Northants. But I don't know anything about the pottery.

Thank you for the link. On Ceramike is also referred as Buchanan-Wollaston Pottery in Byfield, working around '70....Leach "family"?

It does appear that the ID on Mike S's site was done by someone having a pot with the mark and a paper label so pretty conclusive.

Other than it saying that it was in Northamptonshire and it had been run by a couple (the Buchanan-Wollaston's) and then by their daughter there doesn't appear to be any other information elsewhere that I can find. Hand made stoneware was fashionable in the UK during the 1970s and many potteries closed towards the end of that decade.

So no connection with Bill Marshall, Cornwall or the Leach Pottery.

From the information that we have we don't know if this was made by Mr. or Mrs. Buchanan-Woollaston or their daughter.

Despite what I wrote above and the fact that none of these people worked with Bernard Leach the vase is certainly in the Leach Anglo-Oriental style. A Potter's Book by Bernard Leach was read and followed by many who potted in the UK and elsewhere during the 20th century.

Thanks for your advice. I'm not so sure about the Byfield mark, but this could be a later version?
I'm struggling with this one, all the similar marks in the book Michael Welsh, Matt Waite, Alan Ashpool (DX maybe) or Mary White (still haven't completely ruled her out) don't relate when I see their work....I think this will have to wait a while, until something comes up.

A bit more info:

BW Pottery - Nigel Buchanan-Wollaston who potted at Byfield, Northamptonshire from 1975 until he passed away in 1983

I've merged a couple of pots with a square stamp, rather than the more usual round stamp, after the decoration on Debbie's jug showed that they are by the same potter.
