Bristow Pottery while they were at Bonchruch (1961-1967 as I understand it).

Is that Bristow linked to the Malta Bristow, as there were other Maltese BP pieces next to this piece in the sale?

Yes, Tony Bristow did move to Malta for a while, due to business incentives offered by the Government of Malta.

That said, I think production of "Bristow Pottery" continued in Malta after Tony Bristow moved back to the IoW.

Can anyone read this signature and identify it for me, please?

Edited to say: Decoration is very similar to that of Tony Bristow, Chillington. Although the writing is similar to his son Andrew Bristow. Both potted at Bonchurch, albeit almost 10 years apart, so I think Andrew initially copied his father's style before finding his own. So I've left these Bonchurch pots on Andrew's thread but with the proviso that they may be by his father.

Again, thanks Naomi for the lead.

It's Andrew Bristow, Bonchurch Pottery, Isle of Wight.

I have convinced myself that the signature says "Anthony Bristow  Bonchurch ' but it doesn't look like any of the pottery associated with his name. Am I barking up the wrong tree ?
