I've not managed to work out which one yet Happy  According to the book the mark is for Frank Benatt I think, but  I've only managed to find one image on net searching and it looks like it could also be Frances Benatt.  Not a lot of info but they belong to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.
Gorgeous jug I have to say, great shape and glaze.

There was a jug at a 2012 auction with the same mark attributed to Benatt

This one had a label so I think that's pretty conclusive

Maybe Dworsky's Wye Pottery,
or possibly by Fran Benatt

Well done!
Pretty sure now this is Fran Benatt’s mark, 2001 onwards, when she was near Dartington. V local to me but I don’t find her work often but I know a local gallery stocks large colourful figurative dishes by her with nudes etc.
The mark is fb dot - and I can see a dot.
Thank you! Your brilliance is appreciated. I am determined to ID one of your puzzles one day but it may take some time!

Most Excellent (probably not Dworsky; not the right glaze or clay)

Thank you. I think the other Benatt piece you IDed for me was a painted mark. I’ll see if I can photo some of Fran’s recent Figural work.
