This is from a large slipware piece. Sorry, I didn't have my glasses on when I took the photos, so they're somewhat blurred.

The stamp looks like a lidded pot with the initials GCP.

Many thanks in advance!

It's a large slipware lidded bread crock. I don't have the item here with me.

It's slip decorated with the word 'bara'. The Welsh word for 'bread'.

Th reason we need to see the whole item is that the design, material, decorative effects, firing method give many clues as to where it might come from.
