Langley pottery was a name used by Lovatt & Lovatt near Nottingham. This particular mark was used 1931-62. The style looks somewhat 1930's, but may well have been produced postwar as well for a while. The pottery was taken over by Joseph Bourne (DENBY) in 1959.

Just one of the many un-named patterns/shapes/glazes that were produced in the 1930s

Reality is of course, that the UK pottery industry between the wars was still huge. There were a lot of potteries producing many different designs in very large amounts of varying quality.

A most unusual medium Jardiniere. Almost a carved snakeskin design. Again will be
from the 1880s. Just a couple of impressed letters underneath.

I just did some reading up in the Langley book.
I have had bits of "Sapphire" (blue) in the past, and recall the top of the items started
off with another colour at the top, flowing down into the electric-type blue on the body.

"Marlborough Ware" was introduced in 1931, with variations of "Sapphire" (blue),
"Rosslyn " (red) and "Mavis" (green).

Unfortunately there are no pictures of any of these in the book, however looking
on another factory pattern sheet there is an image of this jug, shape 11986.

So by deduction, I reckon it's a Langley Mill "Rosslyn" jug from the 1930s.

A pretty little Fern pot, carved and decorated. Many numbers underneath for
turner/shape/size/colour etc and a feint "Leaning Langley" mark. (1891-1901).

I absolutely love this Lovatts pot. Early 20th Century, hand thrown with deeply carved foliate decoration.
I've owned it for thirty or more years and still enjoy looking at it.

The foot rim isn't damaged as such. Most of what appear to be nibbles are covered over with glaze and the rest is missing glaze. The structure of the pot iss sound and rings like a bell when tapped.

Do you think it's as late as that, dd? I've always felt it to be older, more in line with the first couple of decades of the 20thC, but that is based on nothing more than the 'feel' of it, if that makes sense.

This mid 20thC. Lovatts jug is still used regularly and has survived years of my heavy-handed pot washing intact.
They made 'em tough in Derbyshire. I'm sure denbydump will confirm that.
