Good morning,
I have exhausted all I know and wondered if anyone has any suggestions?
My wife said she saw EVA of EKA inside the foot ring right up against the inside but I can’t see it!
I think it’s the speckling playing tricks but any help gratefully appreciated - originated the Wirral area of Liverpool.
Many thanks for looking and sorry there no more information!
I love identifying / attempting to identify pottery but it’s very frustrating when you can’t!Any help appreciated- but probably a lost cause!! 2b32e510

There is a Wirral Potters group. Have you tried them?
Another long shot. David and Margaret Frith in Denbigh which is not far off the Wirral. That brown glaze reminds me of glazes that David Frith used. Equally they had a large number of students over the years. The squiggle design does look slightly studenty.

Hi Philpot,
Many thanks for the information I came across the Wirral potters group when researching some other pieces which I managed to ID so I didn’t contact them - but probably a good shout. I bought the lot because it included a Leach standard ware cake plate and I think the vendor bought pottery from charity shops and then incorrectly ID’d them - I’d rather sell them for a song on eBay to someone who might collect / like them. I know of the Frith’s work which without being disparaging towards this potter is better than this so it could be a students work - It was ID by the vendor as BL - I think he was on LSD!!
Happy New Year!

I’m wondering if it’s Japanese tableware

Although my wife has more accurate vision than I have Naomi I don’t think there’s a mark and I have scoured BISPM and the book……to appease her!
You’re probably right - I have looked at contacting the Wirral group but their contact e mail seems defunct
Not to worry but thanks for your assistance - I love it when they’re identified but hate it when they’re not!
I remember your ID of Barry Guppy’s piece - easy for you!

Sometimes pieces are just too perfect, at which point you have to think Asian tableware

Although the decoration is not to my taste it looks very well done. It doesn't fit in with anything that I have seen over the years from British potteries and so I am inclined to go along with Naomi's suggestion.

I use lots of studio pottery around the home, so why not use the plate?

The squiggles form a flower, I think? Possibly a chrysanthemum.
