Studio combed stoneware jam pots, V painted mark
I was half expecting a Winchcombe mark but I know a fair few potters did work like this.
One has no mark , one has a V ? painted mark.

Thank you Hercules, the South African ones really are very similar, but mine are without the impressed mark. The design and lid shape are very similar - I think you might have it. Well done!

The Mantenga Pottery was set up by an American, Bill van Gilder, who'd once worked at Coxwold, which I suppose gives the Winchcombe connection...
