My girlfriend found this pretty little Art Deco jug, all we know is that the factory had a relatively short life, just 12 years trading closing in 1935, and that the date mark is for 1927

The three dots with a line through them are a bit puzzling, artists monogram??

I know it was set up to provide work for ex-service men and that a lot of the pieces were designed by well known designers of the day including Phoebe Stabler, wife of Harold Stabler of Carter Stabler Adams aka Poole Pottery. I think you will find the moon symbol is a date code for a particular year. The 3 dots are Spur Marks left by the stilts used to support pottery in the kiln.
