Lovely pot but I honestly don't know. I'm wondering if it's Australian or South African. A side view would be great

Might be Honora French. I have had a few pieces of her work in the past. She worked in Peckham, S. E. London for 10 years or so after the Second World War. I think that she might have taught too, as I recall someone telling me years ago that she had taught them. In the 1930s she had been an assistant of Charles Vyse.

It would be good to see an image of the vase side on.

Looks similar but is it close enough?

I have had 2 or 3 pieces of her work and remember that she potted very little after 1955 from what her "former" student told me.

The Partridge piece looks nothing like the pieces that I have had in the past and was made well after 1955. It could have been by her but the mark on the piece here and the foot looks like the pieces that I have handled, whereas the foot and the clay body on the Partridge piece looks completely different.

I don't feel confident enough to say that it's definitely Honora French's work, having seen so little but I think it could be. I believe that her first name was Honora but can't remember why.

Can I ask where you found it, as that could give a clue?
