Hi guys, I picked this dish today with what looks like an Ivan Martin stamp - †I am not familiar with his work so any help would be appreciated

Ivan Martin was at Cricklade pottery 1951-76. He trained at Winchcombe 1947-51, and ran the pottery with his wife Kay. Looks Winchcombe type, but the mark isn't right. His pottery nearly always comes with a Cricklade and a personal mark. His mark is a shallow capital M with an I runing through it, and just edging over the top. The M on this mark is much too deep. and in consequence the I is much to high. Not him. I have personally had a number of pieces over the years.

I believe itís Iain Markhamís mark. Had a similar one confirmed by him; itís not the version of his mark in the book
