Hello Forum, this is my first post.

I wonder if anyone can help. I've just acquired a beautiful celadon glazed, bamboo handled teapot with the Lowerdown mark stamped into the clay and a D inside an L painted on the bottom.

Was it unusual for David Leach to mark his pots so?

Hopefully my image is below...

I forgot to mention, it does have David's popular foxglove motif on either side.

He did use a written mark sometimes in place of his stamped mark. I'm guessing he mislaid his stamp that day.

Another option is that he had planned to sell it cheaper, as just a Lowerdown pot, but was so happy with the decoration that he signed it, so that he could charge more money.

Having met and spoken with David on many occasions, I would think that my suggestion is more likely. He liked making money, but he was always good humoured with it.

Thanks Naomi & Studio Pots for your prompt replies. Do I take it that you have seen yourselves his pots with a painted D inside an L?

Regards,

Jay.

Thanks again Naomi, most helpful.

When I bought the teapot last week, the seller said it "might be by David Leach", now I'm pretty certain it is.

Regards,

Jay.
