Lowerdown Pottery teapot - David Leach?

Looks like David Leach to me, but no personal mark that I can see. The spout is broken but I still love it.

Itís Lowerdown standardware but David Leach wasnít the only potter so without a personal stamp itís not possible to attribute it to him personally

David did much of the Standard Ware stuff in the later years (after Tim Andrews) and intentionally did not put his own mark on it so that he had things at different prices in his showroom. We use a couple of bowls everyday with the Lowerdown mark only and we know that David made them as he told us when he sold them to us. However, they were made for use and not to be collected and attributing any of these piece to him seems a little unfair to the potter to my mind. However, I think it fair to say that the decoration on this teapot is too clumsy for it be David's.
