Hi all. New here, so be kind haha

I'm familiar with Pog Wares but last year i bought another piece with an impressed ammonite seal mark ( along with an  incised D and R).

I've got a few other pieces with the ammonite seal, and so far have been unable to identify the pottery. The vase shown in photos matches the pottery examples shown in a leaflet Naomi Mott posted on Pinterest, showing info on Pog pottery. The owner's initials don't match with the DR on my piece. Can anyone shed a light on this mark? It's too close in shape in the leaflet photo, not to be by Pog...

Cheers Keithy

The seal is an ammonite rather than amorite, so that may have hampered your search.

Not Pog Crafts, imo. They have their own incised mark.
I’ve come across the DR and ammonite shell combination of marks before but not managed to ID them. There is a Drew Robins based in Somerset who also makes agate ware pots but, tbh, the only similarity is in the initials and they (he? she?) have their own stamp on their website (the website drceramics.com is nolonger operational)

Hi. Thanks for your help folks. Yes, spelling was never my strong point. I was too lazy to check fosil name.

You're right Naomi, it probably isnt By Pog Crafts but my vase shape is so close to the ones featured in your Pog leaflet post on Pinterest, that im wondering if a mould was used by both Pog and another pottery. But throwing marks on pots doesn't help either. Mystery still ongoing... cheers

I feel a little sorry for potters - such as Elli Pearson - who make agateware because Pog Crafts has flooded the market with such pieces

There is mention of a David Rowe in the Marks book with a DR stamp , who made agate ware. But no mention of other versions of his mark
