It is definitely the Yelland mark of Michael Leach's Pottery. However, it does not necessarily mean that it is by Michael Leach himself, as he had a number of apprentices He used an ML mark on his personal pieces, and those are fairly uncommon. Bit like the Bernard Leach Pottery itself where the St Ives mark is common.

philpot is correct but when Michael left the Leach Pottery around the same time as his brother, David, upon the arrival of an "American female" in St. Ives, he just wanted to make functional ware rather than exhibition pots.

Therefore almost all of the production at Yelland was small functional items. All you can say about any of these, is that it was made at Michael Leach's Yelland Pottery.
