I always associate this style with Tremar but have only ever seen it marked with an impressed 'Tremar', so this mark is a mystery to me. Is this a Tremar pot or a close copy?

The mark looks somewhat Louis Hudson's LH mark, but not like most of his work.
There was a somewhat similar mark on the Louis thread that was left being unsure about

Having said that it looks a lot more like Tremar, or Shelf pottery. But not like their mark.

It’s Louis Hudson.

Thanks all. Just looked on ebay for similar examples and it seems that Hudson made a full range of these condiment pots.
Elsewhere on t'interweb I read that Hudson worked as a potter for 12 years from 1971-83, then gave it up to become a lorry driver. I wonder what motivated such a change of career?

He had worked for Alan Wallwork before starting out on his own. Alan let him have a kiln, if my memory serves me correctly, to help get started and Hudson was supposed to pay him for it when he could.

He never did.
