It's got an unusual monogram in the middle - AeR? - and it's slipware which is also unusual. Probably a different Pottery in Purbeck, or Purbeck might be the pattern name.

There's a reference on Robspoolepottery website to "Purback gray" coloured underglaze on Poole plates designed by "Alfred Read in 1953". So maybe your seller meant Alfred, rather than Charlotte?

...The AR monogram might be for Alfred Read.

...but considering everything going on in 1953 it might have been a special commission.

Edited to add: Split from the main Purbeck Pottery thread because it's unlikely to be by that pottery. Possibly a CAR monogram - Christopher Russell, maybe?

Just seen this little thread. It is definitely not Poole and nothing to do with Alfred Read.

There was a glaze called Purbeck Grey but it was just one of many and, although it featured in pattern codes (PRP for example - the last P is for Purbeck Grey), there was no range name. And it is not the glaze on this piece in any case.

I think your original thought it correct Naomi, it must be a different (short-lived) pottery in Purbeck.
