This lovely beaker fits perfectly in the hand, it has a dark blue decoration, very confidently done.  It has a double potter's mark, one part of it looks like a Union flag, but I am uncertain of the initials JP? UP?  I found it in a charity shop, please can any one identify the maker? Thank you

Thank you, that's great - familiar in what way? Do you have any further thoughts on this, please?

I’m guessing it’s this post you were bumping up. To ‘bump’ something then comment on it to move it up to the top of the forum posts.

Thank you so much Naomi, I believe you are right, I have been reading the spoked wheel as a flag. I wonder if these are early versions of Joan Piggford Agnew's marks? And how did this beaker end up in North Yorkshire?
I heve a photo of the base, but have not yet been able to upload it. It shows a pinkish, coffee-ish colour of clay, fairly pale. It is completely smooth, and the edge is chamfered where the base rises to become the wall of the pot.
I am presently scouring the web to look for more examples of JPA's work, if you are aware of a link I would be delighted to know of it.
With very, very many thanks.
