Good evening all,

I recently acquired this lovely vase with a wenford bridge pottery mark but no potters mark, can anyone shed any light on the piece, glaze or maker? Many thanks in advance! Kindness and best regards, happy Friday all!

I'm not sure it's the Wenford Bridge mark

I'm sure that it isn't the Wenford Bridge Pottery mark nor is it made from the type of clay that was used there.

Thank you for your guidance, I agree that it may not be a wenford bridge stamp, the impression is not very deep nor is it circular like other examples. I’m hoping the new photos will help shed some light on the origin. Kind regards x

I would agree with everybody else. The mark is just not right. The downward strokes are too long, and they look too thick, and the left hand stoke looks as though it is turning at the top The branching parts are awkward just not elegant. The glaze would be rather unusual for Wenford Bridge, and the bottom looks too scruffy.

The mark may represent stone framed windows rather than a bridge
