No, although the mark is similar to his, he only used earthenware for about a year (1949/50) and the decoration is nothing like his work.

It's by a female potter whose name might come to me.

The name was Helen Hobson (1980-87). She has been Helen Gillam since then.

Yes, it illustrates very well the fact that marks can often inform but sometimes mislead.

Also having checked her mark in BSPM it doesn't appear there with the elongated horizontal but the description of the works ties in very well.

So although I am 100% certain that it isn't by Henry Hammond, I'm not 100% certain that it's by Helen Hobson.

Maybe someone else can confirm or suggest another female potter with those initials?

Honor Hussey is possible.
