Is This a Derek Davis Mark?

Post by Desert Collector on January 10th 2018, 4:45 am

I am trying to identify this mark and the closest I found was a 1961 mark for Derek Davis. What do others think? It is not quite the same.

It's possible but I don't think so. Although they are both an OV mark, the handwriting looks different. And the glaze looks too bright compared to Davis' usual flambe pieces .
An example of his mark here -

I agree,the mark is not quite right and the clay is also different
