Set up at Braunton, Devon, in 1912 by William Fishley Holland after he left Fremington, and owned by a solicitor named Hooper. Fishley Holland left following Hooper's bankruptcy in 1921, but the pottery carried on until 1971, first under W H Garnish (previously of  William Baron's Rolle Quay Pottery) then under Fred Luscombe and Harry Chichester.

This is the one piece I have. According to JP Cushion's  Pocket Book of British Ceramic Marks, this mark was used from 1947 onwards.
