Hi
I have this rather handsome Abuja coffee pot from the late 50’s.
Despite much searching for the potter, I can’t find a name. Please can anyone help with this? I’ve been looking for CBG but this may be incorrect.
Many thanks

Hi,
Thank you for the info. I had already found a list similar to this, but I couldn’t match the initials on mark to list!! I have found a similar mark (can’t decide if similar enough!) for Gogong Bong. Would you think this mark could be a B inside a G???’thanks again

Looking at those initials again, they do not look as though they are written in English. There are numerous languages spoken in Nigeria!
