I think it does but it's quite unclear. Could well be though.

Any chance of a clearer picture of the signature?

Thanks sukraine ... unfortunately, I have not managed to find anything yet. I am no expert when it comes to pots ... but one thing struck me here:
Marcelle is a female first name ... that implies that the word under it might be the surname. I do not know of anyone by the name of Nevers - but there are a number people by the name of Neveu ... especially Yves Neveu, a potter working in Vallauris. He was the father of Rene Neveu of the Cerenne atelier. Sorry, these are all male names - and the I do not think any of the wives names were Marcelle. I'll keep a look out for any more. Of course the other way to look at it is to check out any female French artists by the name
'Marcelle' ... Marcelle Ferron? ...but I do not think she did pottery!

Thanks that's very helpful. When I originally searched I kept getting Raoul Dufy stuff come up especially pottery decoration items, which was weird, when I looked again at the pot I realised that the images weren't abstract but actually loosely drawn animals etc, rather in his style. I couldn't find anything much more than this strange connection. It rather fascinates me and I will keep trying to find out about it.
