Definitely Will Marno it's a stylised W and M - I used to work with him so I should know!

Towy Pottery T Marks -

Will Marno, Towy Pottery 1ba60410


Yours for comparison, looks like the top of the T is a bit squashed

The shape and glaze would indicate Towy - it looks like a Will Marno piece. The stamp looks like an early stamp (1970s) poorly impressed.

Saltglaze pot with lid 6.5in with a mark rather like a Celtic T. Or could be a C. Thanks.

Undoubtably Towy Pottery, but stylistically very unlike Will Marno, so probably by one of the several other potters who also worked there. By the way it is not saltglaze. Probably glazed over an iron slip which has dribbled and not been tidied up (also not like Will Marno)
