A big, heavy earthenware jug, tin-glazed with fish decoration. Has a slightly continental look (French? Spanish?) but the clay is browner than I would have expected (darker than it appears in the photo) and the acorn mark at the base of the handle looks as if it could be British. But having said that, none of the acorn-type marks in the BSPM book seem to be a match. All suggestions gratefully received.
My first thought was Spanish, or French, especially with that style of base. The only British potter I know with an acorn mark is Brenda Murray and it's not her usual mark. Andrew Mcgarva is out in France and makes similar pieces, but again not his nark; maybe a new potter?
Just my personal opinion, take it or leave it.
