looks French to me
try pushing some blu tac or similar into the base mark, you might be able to read it from the imprint

Thanks for the idea. I did that but the R is then back to front. One thing that does look clearer now is that there is a square or rectangle after the lettering. I still think it says MARGA, do you think so or is it just my eye of faith? Of course, it would be fun if it said Madoura... wishful thinking though.

I found 4 or 5 results for Marga pottery on Google so it may be correct
