Some of you may have seen the bowl in the attached photos for sale on eBay recently as a speculative Lucie Rie.  I thought the form and mark were similar enough to warrant a punt but there are obvious doubts.  Does anyone have any thoughts?

If not Rie, then who?

Many thanks for any help.

If it can be said that something is 10000% then this is 10000% not Rie.

Difficult to tell from your image because it isn't clear but it looks like raku. Is it lighter in weight than you would have expected?

Unknown mark. Not seeing the quality is expect from a professional potter, let alone Rie.

The reason for me putting 10000% was that I thought you were the seller, who had contacted me privately before listing it on Ebay, so he knew damn well that it wasn't by Lucie Rie.

Sorry I didn't read your original post saying that you had bought there. I just saw the bowl and was annoyed.

It just looks wrong, in form and glaze, not sure if it's someone trying to deceive or a genuinely similar mark.
