Have inherited this pair of teacups. They are from the Ellisons pottery in the 60's. I suspect they are jan's. What do you think?

Do they have the crossed keys mark on the base?

I haven't seen any of their pottery 'in the flesh', but we did have a couple of pieces with the crossed keys mark -

And I have this one on pinterest, but it doesn't have the tenmoku glaze.

Thanks !  I am a novice and got to the Ellisons by researching this mark. The black glaze makes it difficult to photograph. Are the Ellisons collectible?As I say I am a complete novice regarding studio pottery.

They are not one of the well known names in studio pottery, but they are a nice pair of cups & saucers. depends on how much nice pairs of studio cups and saucers are going for on eBay right now.
