Naive Brush Strokes Dish . PM mark - Gerry Harvey, Mead Pottery ?

Post by MCWebs on December 3rd 2018, 2:55 am

Does anyone have an idea who this could be? it is rather basic... and i kinda like that about it..

Unfortunatley the way oit has been thrown a line disfures some of the mark but I think it's †PM.. ?







I was wondering if it was Peter Mossop but he uses a round imprint and not a square one...
Thanks for any help..

Think I may have found the mark - Could it be Mead Pottery (Gerry Harvey) ?

It looks the right age and type of work. Is there a dot to the left of the top of the P on your piece or is that just the clay?

It's almost too difficult to tell, but i think that it's just in the clay...

Possibly by Peter Mossop, Homestead Pottery

Then I think it's more than likely Mead Pottery. I don't know anything about Naomi's suggestion but to me this looks earlier than the example by Peter Mossop on Naomi's Pinterest board. However, if you are based on the Scottish borders I could change my mind, as the marks look very similar.

The example in my board still has a question mark against it, and alternatively might be by Hatherleigh Pottery. It does look like the same mark.
Both Mossopís and Mead Potteryís Marks are very similar and neither has a dot, so probably by someone entirely different and so far unknown

I don't think that it is a dot it looks quite likely to be just a fleck in the clay...

We never fully Id'd this one, as the M has offset sharp points, whereas the book shows
the Ms are rounded and droopy.

Much appreciated - the more examples of the work, the more things get clearer (kind off :) )

That one is by Peter Mossop. Iíve just added the attribution.
However, itís not the same mark as this one imo

No it's not the same mark, that's settled, but I can see 4 spurious dots in the top pic.

I think its more like the Mead (Gerry Harvey) pic in the Latest Mark's book... Think the dots aren't meant for by the potter...
