Nice Jug. Nice colour. But that incised signature, now that it somewhat of a problem. There are comparatively few professional potters that do an incised signature. There is a reason for that. The market for professional potters, is collectors. Being the fussy bunch-and somewhat lazy!- that they are, they do really like a mark they can identify easily. It adds a certain 'cachet'. There is snobbishness amongst collectors as well! Big Laughter Big Laughter
So in relaity, if you are looking for value, avoid incised signatures.
Still a very nice piece tho.

I think it’s a date. But also I’m not seeing the quality I’d expect from a professional potter so I suspect it’s a student piece
