Sorry. Thought photos had been loaded!
Here they are,
Beautiful heavy fruit or cheese plate, with fishes (?Pisces) design.
Dinner plate size.
Cannot describe technicalities, as not my metier. I assume moulded, not thrown. Earthenware
Bought new, ca. late 70s.
Thanks so much!

Unfortunately it's not in the Marks book. If no one recognises it then we just have to wait for one to turn up with a label

Actually I think it's a Z not an N - the serifs seem clearly to indicate this.
So I don't know if that means it IS in 'The Marks Book' under Z not N.
But I don't have the book, so I can't check.
Thanks

You're right, it's Z, not N. Not in the Marks book but the Z stands for Zennor Pottery, Cornwall, established by Willie (or Willy) Nankervis, I think potting in the 70s if not before. I've found one with the Zennor stamp and your RS stamp. RS is still a mystery but he had a few assistants.

RS stands for Ruth Scott who's married name is Ruth Rodda. She was Nankervis' assistant in the 70s before setting up her own studio, Tregeseal Pottery, near St Just, Cornwall

Well well well! Bravo! In fact I wondered about Zennor, as it was the only place beginning with Z I could think of.... Thanks again!
I wonder if Ruth is still going? Nothing much on Google. Would like to send a message of appreciation.
