Can anyone help with this mark? It looks familiar like I've seen in the past  but I'm drawing a blank. Made in France with 88 overlapping. Thank you.Green glazed bowl with marks - Biot, France  Dscn4110

I was given this as a gift in the 1980s by a friend I've lost touch with.
I've carried it with me around London through many home moves ever since. I know it's not valuable but I love it and want to know who made it.
The rim is about 14" diameter and its about 3" high.
Can any of you help?
Many thanksGreen glazed bowl with marks - Biot, France  3e552310

Wow. That does look like it
Amazing.
I always thought it was UK.
The marks are so blurred I can’t read it.
Any other info much appreciated

There’s not much online. It seems it’s a place in France that has a long history of pottery making. A company must have set up in the early or middle of the 20thC to carry on making the same style of pottery

The "biot" is a name and style of pottery which has been used since the 16th century.  It is also an area in Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur near Cannes in the south of France.  The shape of the French Pot makes it special, with the rim glazed and often dripping down its sides.  Biot is known for its antique terracotta pots which can be seen along the French Cote d'Azur into the adjacent Italian area, Liguria.

Biot and Vallauris are two towns side by side but Biot is on the seaside
