10” stoneware bottle vase, freely painted decoration.
Well potted but no mark.
I know definite ID on such pieces is hard but any ideas?

Your problem is of course Ben, is where you lucky enough to live. Laughter Historically in Devon and Cornwall there have been many ,many competent potters working in Devon and Cornwall. Its a nice place to live, and the tourists have always provided a market. Indeed, Totnes has been an 'alternative' lifestyle place for near 100 years. Ever since the Elmhirsts bought Dartington.
So you see a lot of decent (lucky you!) pottery that was probably made in the 70's and which had a sticker on it which has now come off. But the problem being, that it is extremely difficult to recognise this type of vaguely Leach/Cardew by style alone, as so many potters were producing similar work.

I know - it’s a well made pot but there must be hundreds of potters who worked in this kind of style. Thanks though, I’ll look for pots with stickers!
