What I do know about this is that it was bought from a small gallery in Plymouth in the late 1950s when the previous owner originally became interested in studio pottery (he then bought nothing for over 20 years). From the same gallery he bought David Leach individual earthenware pieces too.

I thought you would know, Naomi, and it also explains why it was originally sold in Plymouth.

Over recent months I seem to have got more interested in studio ceramics with a mid-century look (mainly European) and this does appeal to me.

I grew up in Plymouth. There were zero galleries there in the 1950's. The centre was literally a bomb site.

I know that the date is correct as the person who bought it was there on his first lecturing job and the other piece that I recognised that he bought at the time was a very large earthenware vase by David Leach, which has developed a nasty long hairline crack over the years.
