11 cm tall, red body.
I bought it as Clive Bowen and I’m just checking it really is before I find it another home.
It all seems right to me but I don’t want to make mistakes ( again!)
Thank you.

mmmmmm…….Its the eternal problem with unmarked items. Who Knows? Especially in small jugs like this, where there is not a great deal of room for a top potter like Clive Bowen to express himself. Any provenance? (essential in unmarked items).

North Devon obviously fits. But if you purchased via Ebay…..Entirely down to the seller. and provenance. Unmarked items are a nightmare, literal fact.

The decoration reminds me of Elizabeth Whitehouse’s slipware

Base looks different but it starts getting really tricky! And she’s a Devon maker too.
