Posted this bowl on ebay as nic harrisons as the mark to me looked very much in his style . Inherited a lot of studio pottery 90% of which i struggle to identify.

If anyone recognises this please let me know.Bowl, NH mark by Nancy Homer, St Agnes Pottery (Not Nic Harrison) Nic_ha10

It doesnt match any of the marks I have for Nic Harrison. The closest NH in the Marks book is A&N Homer, St Agnes pottery, but they were earthenware and this is stoneware

Could it be NA rather than H? The tops curl inwards...

Although I can't see the foot, the bowl looks to be 1960s/70s and so if the mark isn't recorded, which it appears it isn't, then it is very likely to take a long time finding out who made it, if at all.

It is really going to rely on someone that has a pot with the same mark knowing for certain who it is by.

I suppose all that you do know is that it is a pleasant bowl but not by anyone famous.

Hi Naomi
Great detective work. Seems the Homer family were of note back in the 1950s. Nancy L Homer (wife, i think, of Arthur Homer) was also a potter at St Agnes pottery plus a good watercolour artist with her work in the St Agnes museum. Point is her monogram on her paintings was exactly the same as the one on my bowl but with a "L" in the middle. A family style i presume. Finding difficult to find much history on Arthur Homer but he and Nancy ran the pottery 1953 to 1957. Obviously a potter but cannot find any work of his to compare with.

How dim am i its obvious the bowl is by Nancy Homer. I was confused by the mark she put on her paintings which had an extra letter representing her middle name i assume.

A couple of problems. Yours is stoneware, not earthenware. And your mark is a round stamp, but the example in the book is a square one. But it does look like the right era.

Your book reference Naomi and the painting i saw are very similar to the bowls mark. I am sure its correct. Been an interesting search and thanks for your help.

This is indeed Nancy Homer

We have a few of her pieces (and watercolours) at St Agnes Museum and also the boxwood initial stamp she used to impress on her pieces.
She ran Wayside Pottery in St Agnes with Arthur, whose stamp was the more decorative A.
Some pieces have both marks.
The L on her paintings is for Lanyon which was her middle name.

I an Nancy Homers son and can confirm without any doubt that this mark is hers , she used this mark after 1957 and prior to then used an A with an S horizontally crossing the A to signify St Agnes pottery which she ran until 1957 with a showroom upstairs in the house opposite the pottery called Wayside cottage.

Most Excellent  That’s great, thank you 

Do you know if this is also one of her mark?

I have several with this mark and have no proof that it was used by her. I can see no reason why she would use the marking with a D and the glaze colours used on the pieces I have are not like any of her other works I have or have seen but then she did experiment a lot in her early days. Also I do not ever recall seeing a stamp with these markings in her pottery but this was over 50 years ago.
My best guess is this may have been used by her predecessor Miss Bulkley but it is only a hunch that I cannot back up.
Sorry I cannot be more helpful and would also like to know the origin.

That's very useful. Excellent
I've swapped the photos for a link to the thread we have on the subject, which makes it far more likely the jug is by one of the Bulkley sisters
