Definitely the Lowerdown potter of David Leach. with the D+. But that David Leach mark looks very unusual. Never seen one like that before.

I suspect it could possibly have been thrown by someone other than David or maybe him. Then after David painted it he felt pleased with the outcome and decided to painted his personal mark on it. By then the body would have been too dry to use his personal seal.

I remember once visiting him and buying an exceptionally nice small pot with only the Lowerdown mark on it and him remarking that he had made it and decorated it and regretted not putting his personal mark on it.............. as he could then have charged me more!

The style influence does remind one of the Bernard Leach Jam pots just marked with a painted BL and the impressed St Ives mark. This one on pinterest for instance.https://it.pinterest.com/pin/104638391312047944/

Thank you for all your comments. I had seen the Jam Pot on Pinterest which is similar but not quite the right shape. There is a similar shaped pot by Bernard Leach - Pagoda - but it is not a Jam Pot!

Using the shape and making something bigger or smaller is all part of the potting experience. I know that in the past I had lidded pot by Jeremy (David's son) who had used the same shaped lid.

As a collector, that mark would make me wary.

It's an underglaze mark, so it's fine in my opinion, though DL may have only been the decorator, but this is no different from many of BL's later pots.
