Small Sgraffito Pattern Studio Vase - W mark - possibly Mollie Winterburn

Post by Clarehelen on Tue Jul 12, 2016 2:20 pm

Hello, I bought this small vase at a yard sale recently. It is decorated with golden brown slip with sgraffito decoration cut into it.
It stands almost 4" tall. There is an impressed mark to the base - possibly a W or M, or maybe even an E in a rectangle.
Can anyone help identify the potter?
I had thought about Mollie Winterburn, but it doesn't seem quite right for her - most pieces were unglazed.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks, Clare

Came across another Slipware pot today with the same mark. Looks similar to one on a pot stamped Iona. Gordon Menzies potted on Iona but in stoneware.

Hi Naomi, it's great to get a little additional info after so long. Thanks - I'll see what else I can find about Gordon Menzies. Clare

I think your first thought was right - Mollie Winterburn
