Not a mark Iíve come across before. It looks like a figure, with baggy trousers and shoes and maybe holding something

I believe this mark is Polperro Pottery ... run by Steve Harland with Frank Robinson until Robinsons death in 1974. Then Roberta Norris took over the pottery and the original 'P' mark eventually changed to a rather complex mixture possibly based upon the intials of Frank and Angie (his wife) Robinson, and Roberta Norris - as you see here.

I found this out when I did a search for a mark sometime ago. It turned out to be Steve Harland ... but there was another mark ... this one ...



Google revealed the info I gave you, so I posted the Harland jug on my ihior site which you can see by going on there ... or you may come across the Harland jug and the same info also on google.

I compared the two marks but there are too many differences, and itís usually accompanied by Harlandís personal stamp or other ones. Itís possible they had another stamp but for now I think the attribution is still up in the air.

... I see what you mean NaomiM ... yes, I have also noticed the differences ... and I think you are right to doubt ... but don't dismiss this ... just in case ...

Iíve always wondered what Harlandís mark for the pottery was, so thank you for the explanation
As for the mark in question, we just have to wait for another one to turn up

Excellent
