There is an argument as to who was best of the Leach school of potters. Freed from the stylistic shackles of Leach Pottery, Bill Marshall takes some beating.

There will always be an argument, as there is no definitive answer, but for what it is worth, for me, Bill was the finest potter that worked at the Leach Pottery. Not only did he make very fine work of his own there and afterwards but a number of Bernard Leach's best pots too.

Here's the same dish with a couple of cut and shaped porcelain bottles made in Lelant after he retired from the Leach Pottery.

Ed once said that William Marshall never incised his mark but I’m seeing a number at the auction houses with an incised MW and date on the base

I have on occasions had pieces of Bill's work with an incised mark (maybe when he had lost his seal?) but I don't recall seeing a date. However, that doesn't mean he didn't.

Talking about an incised mark. This one was made at a Potter's Camp. Hence the incised date and mark. 40 cms in diameter
