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 - possibly 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 Noami
Great detective work. Seems the Homer family were of note back in the 1950s. Nancy L Homer wife i think of N 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 signature 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 N Homer but he 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. Yous 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.
