I've seen this mark before I know I have, but now I'm looking for it....please tell me.
About 4.5 inches tall.




Not sure which is the right way up!

Thanks for that Naomi, I thought it was quality potting! Found it in the marks book now you've nailed it.
So will this be Guy Sydenham if it's impressed on it's own?

possibly but Russel often just used the quay stamp whereas Guy almost always added his own stamp too.
There wasn't much space though..

The Quay Pottery makes was designed by Guy to fend off Poole Pottery's threats of copyright. I A Potters Life II there is a section about it. Its based on back to back P's For Poole Pottery and the H is for the Harbour. Ans as can be seen it resembles a Key. This is one of the many things I admired about Guy. His inventive imagination. I have a flagon and three goblets bearing Russels mark but when I showed one to Russel he said "they are dad;s " I said but they have your mark on them. He said well as we worked together sometimes item were marked with each others marks. I said how can you tell He said its the way the handle is pulled in wet clay. One will have a groove along the middle and the other will have a raised ridge. That only works of course if the item has a handle !!
