Probably from the 50s.
I have a massive Buchan collection, but I haven't seen one with a studio-type glaze
like that before, most unusual!
Shape 43, size 10, pattern/glaze K3.

Thanks that's good information.

So - as a newbie - does the 10 represents the size? It is 10" in height.

I could not find another example anywhere on the Internet. Do you imagine it has much value?

Much appreciated

Collectors of Buchan pottery prefer decorated pieces, so this one, although it's rare, is mainly of academic interest

Yes the second number would be the size, or the capacity (in Fl oz) in the case of jugs.
