Found this today and believe it to be the beginnings of Celtic Ware. It is inscribed 'FISHER ENGLAND' on base and has what appears to be the phoenix design in monochrome. The base is also nicely done. Size 210x175x55mm. I believe that the early pots were made at Mousehole, Cornwall, before it moved to Newlyn. Does anyone know if this is a rare item? Thanks

Yes they are much preferred to the later Celtic production touristy pieces. You are best watching eBay sales and history for prices. That is a good strong design and I like the stripes on the back.

The style and subject matter suggest Maggi rather than Bill but a nice find
