That was my first thought but there is no Leach pottery mark and I cant find anyone from that pottery with these initials . I have searched on http://www.studiopottery.com/ and through all the known Leach potters to no avail .

I suspect it's one of the St Ives associate potters. The England stamp looks very like one on Leach standard ware.
Could be a PB mark; Im wondering if Paul Barron was ever at St Ives?

Paul Barron was a student at the RCA of Staite Murray and was never at St. Ives.

It does look very Leach Pottery though, although I accept not made there.

I think you've mis-read it, although to be fair it is a little confusing. It is saying that Norah was " a talented student of Bernard Leach's."

No, it's nothing to do with the Leach Pottery.

Not a shape made there plus the handle is not in the correct place for them and the mark is incorrect.

Saying it was "nothing to do with the Leach Pottery" above isn't entirely true as Scott Marshall, who started the Boscean Pottery, was an apprentice there. Also Richard Jenkins, who was his partner at Boscean, was at the Leach Pottery for a time as well (1959 -1961).

Jacob Bodilly has just said that this mark is not Boscean Pottery; they did not mark their pots, although Scott Marshall marked some of his SM.
Edited to say: However, it’s now believed to be Richard Jenkins’ mark; well before Bodilly’s time at the pottery .


it would be nice to compare Marshall's work with this ones marked IB and ENGLAND

I’ve moved your ID request to it’s own thread. If it’s IDed and by the same potter then we’ll merge them again and move the thread into the Studio Pottery section
