Hi everyone, I have just obtained this beautiful dish but I cannot identify the mark.

It stands 2.1/2" high.
6.1/4" dia.
It has a raised button inside the base with a letter W. I have done my utmost to make a clear picture.

Kind regards in advace
Rosie.

It looks like porcelain, and the mark is similar to Mary Rich.

No idea, but I agree the dish is probably an early piece, assuming it is by her.

Liz is a relatively unknown potter but her skills stack up well when compared with the bigger names

Salt glazed, WJ mark - Elizabeth / Liz Gale P1010010  Salt glazed, WJ mark - Elizabeth / Liz Gale P1010011 Salt glazed, WJ mark - Elizabeth / Liz Gale P1010012

a nice little salt glazed milk jug with decoration you might expect from a Wally Keeler pot or even one altered after throwing by Ruthanne Tudball but Liz sells these jugs for £18.00 so you can enjoy using stylish pots without worrying about chipping them.  Excellent

Lol! I would have said the opposite. Jane has the more interesting handles and shapes and underglaze decoration.

At first sight I thought this was David Lloyd Jones' mark but now I'm not so sure. The decoration has a Dartington Pottery vibe, and the bowl shape is reminiscent of Alan White

Hi Naomi - for what it's worth!
I'm clutching at straws a little but I'm sure in the dim & distant past I've seen similar - my guess and it's only a guess which may help others guide you in the right direction. If your bowl is porcelain? it looks to have a deep thrown foot and is not dissimilar to those of Aldermaston - stay with me! Geoffrey Eastop was a founder member of Aldermaston with ACS. He later worked with/for John Piper (Artist) and your little bowl could be from his period of work after Piper. He did use some porcelain, bold glazes splattered with resist markings & quite abstract. The mark is not a million miles away from those shown for Eastop but does differ from the books, could be a later mark or his stamp had twisted or was dirty!! I'm not sticking my neck out enough to confirm it would be him but I'm sure this may allow others more expert than me with his work to confirm - many museums hold his work (usually much larger chargers) I did once see the charger held by Bucks CC museum depicting a nuclear explosion/mushroom FAB & huge in red/orange black from memory.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have a couple of pieces by Geofrey Eastop from his time in Aldermaston and afterwards. Tbh, he was a far better thrower than decorator. Also I haven't come across any of his pots with a stamped mark. They've all been handwritten. But I'll investigate further.

The clay might be porcelain or a white stoneware.

Agreed. If it was porcelain I'd expect it to be a little more thinly potted.

I thought it was David Lloyd Jones' Mark but it doesn't seem crisp enough. It's very like the mark on a bowl of mine, which I also thought was by Lloyd Jones until I compared the fonts.

Here's one of the others, stamped side ways....it's so small, hard to get a good close up. Seems like a slightly different stamp was used.
I see what you mean about the Lloyd Jones stamp.
