So many gorgeous pots-so little space in my wee bugalow Sad
I can't see a single piece there that I wouldn't give house-room to. Most Excellent
And true to form, Mrs. Primate has just looked over my shoulder and said "eurgh, that tall one's not even straight". Philistine!! Innocent

G Lyons signature

Post by Spider_D on Mon 19 Nov - 12:19

I recently purchased a large bowl with the inscripion on the base, scratched into the wet clay:
"Aug 03 1968 G Lyons"
How do I know if this is genuine ?
