1993 Vase - Victor Holst, Devon

Hi

Can't make out much apart from 93 - the hashed cross and maybe St. Looks like they were incised with the end of a brush handle.

Lovely blue glazes, I wonder if it is indeed a British piece?

Thanks

Actually it may read 93 35 10 - which I don't like the look of what with that and a Maltese style cross......

I'm reading 2570 and 93. I think 93 is the year. The other might be a pattern number or 25th October 1993. If it's the latter then it points to a student or foreign potter. If it's a pattern number then it points to a European potter.

Yeah I'm certainly thinking not British now. Kind of a Vichy French cross thinking about it

Yes, I think French or Belgium, or even German stoneware is more likely

You're right RV, it's not Norwegian. Victor and Wendy Holst are based in Exmouth, Devon
