Is this bowl by Margaret Leach, made between 1951-56?

There have always been conflicting views on this last mark, which was used at the pottery within the Taena Community in Gloucestershire. Maybe this late on it might be difficult to get a definitive answer but the general opinion seems to be that this is not her mark.

Many thanks, S-P.

So it was made at the pottery in the Taena Community where she worked, but probably not by Margaret.

Do you have any idea when that pottery closed and how many people worked there?

I don't think this cross mark is either the Taena or non-Taena marks. I think it's a different one entirely

I've found the pottery's Web site and have sent them an email. I'll let you know what they have to say.

Early Richard Godfrey is a possibility
