Not the most eye-catching of pots but holes are interesting and it's quite well potted - Has anyone seen the mark before?? is it AD or ADP??

Certainly nothing ghastly about it. Its very well potted. However, it does have that certain 'look' of a good deal of well-potted stuff that came out of the 70's boom in studio pottery.

By Wilfrid Norton. Not much biographical info around. This was from Marshall Colemanís blog:

Wilfrid Norton, a figurative ceramist inspired by Anthroposophy, who was well-known in the 1930s and ran the pottery department at Camberwell school of art, but who is now forgotten.

I wish it was by Wilfred Norton but I'm pretty sure that's not the mark N..

It's also not the quality of his work either - Think he's probably turning in his grave right now...

I will have to check my notes but there was a similar, pierced vase on eBay a few months ago, unattributed, and with a similar bow type mark, which I got very excited about, thinking it was by George Jouve but the mark was far closer to that of Wilfrid Norton

You identified one of my first pots as a Wilfred Norton quite a way back N. that oozed quality and marks are more angulated not round and they're joined, this one, its, well its a bit lame and mark is too rounded
