Thank you the design matches with other Jo Lester items Iíve googled, but I havenít come across a pot like this before. Itís quite crude and not very well fitting I wondered if maybe not many produced because of this. Any thoughts. The seahorse mark is a bonus and very much like the design on the plates heís made.

It became a bit of a franchise with other potters being allowed to use his mark , hence the variable quality

I don't recall ever seeing this seahorse mark on any of my own pieces,
neither can I find any reference to it in the IOW pottery book.
