Have you checked the lists of apprentices on the Aldermaston thread?

There is a list of most of the Aldermaston potters marks on the Aldermaston thread . Its basically judging the one that is closest to yours. Because they were often done quickly, it is often difficult to judge exactly. This one looks as tho it might be early in someone's apprenticeship. That blank white above the handle is extremely unusual for an Aldermaston piece, and those lines at the top look distinctly wonky.

The apprentices always had an A for Aldermaston and another letter or two from their name. This might be AT or AF

I can't see any close match for this one, even though the brush stokes
seem quite deliberate.

Not all the apprentices’ marks are recorded . This seems to be by a fairly junior apprentice so maybe they didn’t stay long

Oh well, I’d better learn the marks for Caiger smith and Edgar Campden as they seem to be the sought after makers.

This maybe another example of this mystery mark. I think it’s AF

There are keen collectors for Aldermaston pottery but Alan Caiger-Smith does command a premium. For the rest it depends on the decoration. Some pieces are more decorative than others.
