The glaze splitting. mmmmm…. Lovely technical details of the firing faults here.
But reality being. One is dealing with a pottery narrative here. Moreover the first few years of a more or less legendary pottery in the small Studio pottery world.
The first few years of the Leach pottery were bedevilled by problems. Chief among them were firing problems. They had a very poor kiln. So, if this piece is from those couple of early years. The faults adds to the romance and the pottery story. Cos few of the faulty pieces survive circa 100 years. It could be quite rare.
Of course, proving it was from the first few years is another matter!

To me the shape suggests 1930s rather than 1920s but I don't say that with great certainty.
