Stephen Smith, Leicester, SHS and FP marks  310 Bought this teapot the other day, I didn't notice the impressd mark on the bottom rim until I got home, it looks like FP to me, although I am usually wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions as to possible manufacturer ?

Hi did you find out who made your teapot, I have some items with the same mark and also trying to find out who they were made by.

Stephen Smith, Leicester, SHS and FP marks  Empty Pot With Domed Lid. House & Church Scene. FP mark - Stephen Smith?

Post by stardust* November 19th 2015, 4:39 pm

About 6 inches high (to the highest point), sitting on top of the lid is a textured scene of a church, and on the other side a house.
The lid has been cut like a puzzle piece and only fits one way.
I have the feeling it's made to sell to visitors somewhere, but I could be wrong.
I'm not sure if the mark is made up of letters or not, you would think a google search would bring up something as this is quite distinct, but I'm having trouble. Does anyone know this?

HI, is anyone familiar with the maker's mark VK (it could be VR but I think most likely a K).
Thanks in advance, Shane...

I've just bought a couple of pieces with this mark at a car boot sale. One is a jug with the same pattern as the vase in the previous post, and the other a vase, rather differently decorated. The mark on both is impressed onto an applied circle of clay.

Excellent find. But he seems to have a rather low profile online. Would he be half of the Steve and Sandra Smith of Leicester mentioned as showing stoneware at various craft fairs?

Stephen Smith, Leicester, SHS and FP marks  Empty Little vase, monogrammed SHS - Stephen Smith

Post by Essenjay May 27th 2017, 5:21 pm

8cm tall vase, simple hand-painted decoration in a David Sharp type blue.

Raised monogram twice SHS(?) in an oval. Pretty sure the mark has featured on here fairly recently but I have a memory like a sieve.

I’ve come across the mark paired with Stephen Smith’s mark but don’t know what Pottery it refers to

A lot of potters made similar pieces, and Rankin's pot is a different shape with sheep on top so I dont think there's a link.
