Hi to all again. Picked up this lovely lizard or gecko from local charity shop. Black stamp on the base A.S. Hayle Cornwall, could this be just a retail name outlet for Foster's or Kernewek potteries. Date: My guess 1970s - 1980s. Done some research on Hayle for this name with no luck. Anyone on here from or use to live in Hayle who might know name and shop, Thanks.
Solved! Peter & Anthony(Tony) Swanson Pottery Cornwall Hayle Circa 1980s early 1990s.
I’ve seen a lot of their seals but not a lizard before. Usually unmarked or with a sticky label
Just my personal opinion, take it or leave it.

Anthony Swanson pottery before it became Alicium pottery, Steppy Downs Road, St Erth Hayle. He has been potting for 30 years, so he would have started his pottery around 1989 there about. Never seen these marks before. I have had a message from his daughter on the Hayle Facebook page earlier, she has given me his details, so hope to find out a little more about this piece. Thanks again for input NaomiM, cheers Ern.
