Two pots only 11cms tall. both have VV or YV stamp. I recently came across a teapot with a similar stamp on ebay, described as early David Winkley Vellow Studio.

Do you think this is the same on my 2 pots and they are Vellow or possibly early David Winkley too?

The eBay teapot has a vV mark. I've seen pieces with a similar mark by Veronica Newman but in porcelain. The teapot mark doesn't look to be in The same font as your VV mark. Needs more research.

This has been a mystery mark for a while and sometimes attributed to Vellow on eBay but it's not one of the marks in the BSPM book so I'm going to move it to ID my pottery until it's confirmed one way or another

I just got this email from David...

Sorry Graham but I didn't make either.  There are a few floating around on the web that say there are from here
but aren't.  Mine are stamped with Vellow (w!) and Somerset plus the workshop mark.


This begs the question: Who did make them?

So David says No. The clear marks on his thread are pretty conclusive.

I have have some of these bits in my hand before, wondering what they were,
often in that speckled oatmeal glaze.

We must be down to a YV or a VY, both uncommon letters for names.
Vera, Victor/Victoria, Vernon, Yolande ???

Or, maybe a place name would more likely eg
Yare valley, or Vale of York....
