Brown mottled jug, perhaps AB, AE, AF etc

Hi all, the A has a curved top which seems to rule out all the marks I can find, any suggestions? †It isn't very well finished so possibly a hobby potter?

It looks like a professionally made piece from the 60s-70s. Not a mark I immediately recognise. Iíll check the books.

There are a lot of ceramics in France with a kind of mottled iron oxide glaze (is it called a pyrite glaze or something?) ... but your pot has a chop mark which, I believe, is more likely to be English. Looking at the base, along with the chop, I reckon this is not a hobby piece of table ware.

I missed the black dots. Agreed, more likely to be French and later than I thought

Just when I think I'm learning I get something utterly wrong and then have a whole new nation of pottery to figure out Shock
Thank you so much for the guidance, I wonder if there is a 20iemesiecleforum.fr Laughter
