Maybe Priddoe

From the TorquayPottery.com website:

"In 1954 [Peter] established [Priddoe's] pottery at Three Beaches, Goodrington where to start with he and his wife Mary produced simple items with sgraffito and slip designs much in the fashion of the time. Later they moved into a modern purpose built shop and workshop with living accommodation above. There they produced basic shapes by jollying saucers and small trays these being individually hand decorated with a wide variety of subjects like boats, caricature faces, birds, cats, cows, cockerels, dogs and fish mostly using the sgraffito and slip technique. Much of this was done by Mary Priddoe and Peter’s sister June Grose, other decorators included Janet Churchwood, Marian Snell. Throwers at different times were Donald Duxley, Peter Draper, Stuart Bass and Cyril Wilson.

In 1964 the Priddoe’s studio pottery business closed and was sold. Peter and Mary went their own way working for a short time as studio potters locally. Mary worked at her River Dart Pottery at Dittersham and Peter with his The Westward Pottery at Brixham and Galmpton. Peter later died overseas in 1971."
