Potty - think you are spot on - the mark could be LJ but more than that i have found some identified chargers of his online and the designs tie in really well so Im happy to go with him.

This is a Studio Pottery Vase with a B shaped pattern around it and a stylised monogram of either a W or an M or even a B sideways!  Can anyone please help ID this?David Lloyd Jones  Img_8810

David Lloyd Jones (1928-1994) is one of those select potters who produced work of the Leach school who did not work at the Leach pottery. He studied at the Guildford School  of Art in the early 50's. mainly doing sculpture, but also doing some pottery under the tutelage of Helen Pincombe. It was through these lessons that he determined to be a potter.
                 However, he spent most of the next decade working in his Father-In-Law's Cinema in York. It was not until 1962 at the age of 34, that he felt financially secure enough to start potting full time. At his pottery in Fulford on the outskirts of York, he faced a steep learning curve in all the many intricacies of being a Studio potter. He mostly worked on his own producing a Bread and Butter range of domestic Ware that mostly paid the Bills, being very good, but nothing out of the ordinary. His work produced for exhibitions was of another quality again. His  teapots in particular can be sublime, and his large Chargers are beautiful with their intricate decoration. It is this side of his work that still receives a lot of admiration.
               His reputation grew, and he was elected a member of The Craft Potter's Association in the early 70's. He was a member of the CPA Council for several years, serving as Chairman in the early 1980's .
             His earlier work is an impressed name. His later mark was a
LJ as below. This mark sometimes became in-filled, and if you have a lovely  Leach school looking pot with a mark you cannot make out, it might well be his.David Lloyd Jones  Img_0245

Fairly certain that this is by David Lloyd Jones.
Rare mark, not often seen.
I'm a tad unsure as the last pieces I had with this mark had the impression at a different angle.
Other than that, it sings his name.
Looking for a confirmation please.

Are you sure you mean David Lloyd Jones? It's not a mark I've seen before and it's not mentioned in the marks book

Yes indeedy. It's going back a fair few years, but the person who told me had a strong connection with the family. It stuck in my mind because I'd let some lovely pieces go for pennies.
The mark is very rarely seen.

You may be right Naomi, though I very much hope not 😁
I'll hopefully get confirmation, either way, in the next day or so once I message her.

It's definitely the work of David Lloyd Jones.
It dates to the 1960's.
Ruth kindly responded a little while ago.
She doesn't just make fantastic pots, she's also a lovely person 🌟
