I thought this coffee pot with lid was by the Leach Pottery at St. Ives but am now having doubts, perhaps it is early Mike Dodd - Circa 1971-1975.

Height: 19cm

Stylistically,it does not look like a Leach St Ives pot. The handle is wrong and I don't think they ever did that two-tone glaze. The mark does not really look like an early mike Dodd either. The arms are much longer,and the whole impression is slimmer than the mark here.Sorry!

Agreed. I don't think it's either, either. May be an sh or fh monogram? or even ch, looks like a bit of a finger nail across the C

Thanks every one for your comments, I also doubt that it is by Mike Dodd.
Here is a closer view of the mark.
Also here is an image of a mug which is illustrated on the Pottery Studio site featuring Leach Pottery. Same earthenware with added iron to add the reddish colour to the clay and the same two tone glaze.

It's not an unusual colour combination. I think Marianne de Trey did something similar, amongst others. Although St Ives does do it the best imo :)

It's a commonly used stoneware clay body.
