Scarce Fenella Fern pottery vase made at the Porthleven Pottery and I think she still uses this design in New Zealand. I have done some research below and I don't know how accurate the info is here as there is no history here regarding her time in the UK before Fenella and Graham left for Zew Zealand. So any input or corrections welcome. I have also posted this in the Graham Fern topic.

Porthleven f mark, Fenella or Graham?
I bought a planter and little vase - with Porthleven mark on the planter and f mark on both. Nice glazed and toasted stoneware.
Looking at the Porthleven thread there are similar glaze pieces with gf mark for Graham Fern. But this style of f mark on the thread is for the daughter Fenella - does that seem right?
