Could I have some help with this please. Approx. 16cm tall. Writing around the rim says "Derby Anno 1989 William Pursglove"
There is the Pursglove family of Eyam Hall, Eyam Derbyshire, I don't know if it refers to one of this particular family?
I thought this would be easy but I'm not finding WJP or is it William J Pursglove who made the pot?
I don't have a clue, just speculating.

Hello!

I'm delighted to be able to solve your mystery: the J stands for John, and William John Pursglove is the potter. He's actually my father. He was active as a potter throughout the 90s, working from a pottery at the Ferrers Centre in Staunton Harold. I wonder if this was perhaps a piece he made at college.
