Hi,

I believe this is a Jug by Warwick Parker when he was a student apprentice at Lowerdown Pottery between 1960-1964.

I havent seen this combination of marks before, have any of you? One for the Warwick Parker section.

Best regards
Pugmill

Is that first mark actually an L+? The bottom lower end of the L seem to be going upwards. Although the glaze occlusion makes it quite difficult to read. You do not often see glaze occlusion in Lowerdown pieces.

There are many examples of an upward tail on the L.
