From the same 1981 Penzance auction as above.
A stoneware vase with celadon 'Ying-Ching' glaze over white slip, with narrow neck and everted rim, the spherical body with incised decoration of grey swirls within bands.10.5 ins high. BL and St Ives seals.
This pot was believed to have beenone of the last pots made by Bernard Leach, having been one of only five that were kept from a batch. circa 1975.
The above comes from the auction Lot description. The claim is probably true, as Janet Leach is thanked at the beginning of the catalogue for her assistance in the cataloguing of the sale.
A process with probably became a good side -line for her, as she did the same for lots of the major London auction houses as well.

A Rare slip decorated earthenware charger, 16 ins diameter. BL in script and St Ives marks. Circa 1940.
In the Lot auction description the centre  motif in brown slip is described as the 'Leach Crest'
The Latin around the edge is a Heraldic phrase meaning 'Yet hope is not broken'. Which is a Very intriguing usage in 1940 with Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain.

An early stoneware cottage with green glaze and gabled ends 3.5 ins high. Incised 1925 and impressed BL script seal and St Ives Seal. Note to catalogue description: 'This is a model of the house once belonging to Reg Turvey. It was built behind the St Ives studio and was designed by Bernard Leach for his close friend, fellow artist and one time fellow student at the Slade School of Art.'
             They did produce some unusual items at the Leach St Ives. Lot 242 in this sale (no photo) was  A rare and early earthenware Rabbit, the model with dark brown glaze 1,5 ins high. Incised script signature with original price tag for 5 shillings.
              Lot 241 was a stoneware Ink Pot 2 ins high with BL and St Ives seal. Circa 1960.
              Lot 275 was a large Jardiniere with celadon glaze and melon form 7 ins high, 11,5 ins in diameter, BL and St Ives impressed marks. Circa 1950.
             There is occasionally a lot of dispute about Salt glazing at St Ives. Lot 219 is of particular note because  in a note it states; 'Janet Leach built a salt glaze kin in 1956 at St Ives and this pot  is one of the several made by Bernard Leach while trying out this kiln in its first firing in 1957.'
Bear in mind that Janet Leach assisted with the creation of the catalogue.
          The actual Lot was an unmarked  Salt glaze 3.25 inch vase.
           Furthermore in this sale Lot 246 was a very rare Salt glaze vase with spherical body and short waisted neck in stoneware with mottled glaze. It also had three applied porcelain leaves to the body.
BL and St Ives seals circa 1957.

            So salt glazing WAS tried in 1956/57 at the Leach Pottery!
