Hi All,
This large 37cm diameter 6cm high dish is unmarked, my first thoughts when I found it was the late Eric James Mellon but all his pieces that I can find online are signed, it's still a nice figurative dish by an unknown potter. Eric James Mellon Style Dish Unsigned  00110

I suspect that it is just someone having a go at producing something in a similar style to Mellon. Not only is the stoneware body wrong for him but the glazes used are also not like anything he ever used.
