Had a mark like that on a piece. Thought it could be IA as well. Never could identify it

I too had one of these in the past. I can't be sure but I seem to recall the potter's name was John, maybe Christie. I know when I had the pot I was surprised at the maker's name. Hope I am not setting you off on a wild goose chase, kind regards

MCJ = Michael Crosby-Jones

He was the only senior potter allowed to mark his pieces (apart from Brigitta, Eillen and Tony Barson). Only ever seen his marks on 70s teapots, so Fern, Sunflower pattern etc.

I suspect that ant mark means it's not Briglin.
