I'm probably very wrong but I've ruled out the more obvious DK's ( may be DR),

found last week and struggling to ID, seems to have some age.

Any suggestions most welcome : ) cheers

Could be. Matches SP's comment on the Dorothy Kemp thread

She did work in stoneware as well as earthenware but the mark doesn't look right. On Miss Kemp's pieces the diagonals of the K come out from the upright with no right angle section.

I have a number of DK marks attributed to her on my Pinterest board but I couldn't say for certain any of them are Dorothy's

Cheers Naomi, your pinterest boards are really helpful (helped loads on previous id's) I checked them out before posting this pot.

This pot is 'worn' and full of hairlines so not one to cry about but interested all the same : )

thanks.

Tbh the mark on yours looks more like an RD than a KD

Thanks I will have a look,  I have checked all permutations,
tbh, I first thought, when I bought it, Ruth Duckworth which I quickly ruled out when I got it home  Rolling Eyes .

I don't have a mobile phone, so rely on memory when shopping.

Its not a problem though and interesting all the same : ) x

She doesn't appear to have done much work on her own and I believe very little after the early 1960s so there can't be a great deal of her real work around with an individual seal.

I remember going around to someone who describes himself as "advised museums for over 30 years" on the subject of studio pottery a few years ago and noticing a large number of Dieter Kunzemann dishes being described as by Dorothy Kemp. I didn't have the heart to tell him but I think someone else did.
