I think I have a porcelain bowl by this maker with an area name incised also, I'll have a look when it's out of the dishwasher!

His name was Tom W. Howard. I don't know about the Leach connection but he started potting in Loughton in 1956 so your vase Brin is an early piece. I don't know when he finished but it does appear that he was there in 1971!

I think your vase Brin is earthenware, as he seems to have potted with that up to 1960 before going over to stoneware and it seems porcelain. No reason not to eat your cereal from his bowl but you really ought to have grown out of Coco Pops by now. They're not good for you.

I know that you are far too sensible to have "Coco Pop urges" Brin, those comments were aimed at young Potty. He'll never reach our age unless he stops abusing his body with such things.

"Flavoured with real cocoa and fortified with additional nutrients, a 30g serving of Kellogg’s®️ Coco Pops®️ provides a source of vitamins and iron." Cheeky

I tend to eat Coco Pops or Porridge at the moment, but this bowl is hopeless for porridge Excellent

On topic: I think they both look fairy well potted anyway.

Remember Potty - no advertising Naughty...................... but porridge (especially the "religious" brand) is much better for you.

When I first saw the mark I thought Tom Howard, as it was a name that I was aware of in the past but couldn't find a reference to him in BSPM. I then assumed that I was getting the name confused with my wife's godson, who has the same name, but was convinced that the potter's surname was Howard.

I then stumbled upon a reference to him in Godden and have now re-checked BSPM and found that he was in there all the time. BSPM used all the references from Godden to studio potters from 1962 and before.

So I suspect that I did have one of his pots in the distant past and had successfully identified it then. In the back of my mind though I do think that I might have seen a short article about him somewhere a long time ago.

Can anyone help me identify the maker of this bottle/decanter. On the base it is impressed with a Monogram that looks to be TWH and the number 58 which I'm guessing is perhaps a Shape Number. It's also impressed LOUGHTON. The actual bottle measures about 9 inches tall by about 6.5 inches across. The mouth of the bottle has a cork seal into which the top fits. Thanks.

Beswick was at Loughton, Essex, so maybe someone was allowed to do a bit of private work

That's great. I'd spent ages looking on Google with no joy at all. Now that I have the name, it seems very easy to get some details about the maker - so many thanks to everyone who looked and/or replied but particularly to Potty and Studio-pots.
