Can't find out much about him on the net except this article

http://www.abbotsbury-heritage.org.uk/results/appreciation/081.html

this article has him dying in the 1960's , the studio book puts his demise at 1978, but as he was 78 when he died maybe the book got a mixed up.
so born around mid 1880's .
worked at Chesilbourne 1949-57 and Abbotsbury , Dorset after that ..
His wife Hilda also a potter died in 1974 , her mark appears identical to some farnham pottery sgraffito wares .

1961 PS Knotted three pot sculpture - Roger Ross Turner, Abbotsbury Pottery

Post by RVsaid on Fri Mar 01, 2013 9:39 am

Hi

I would have thought Penny Simpson but 1961 seems a little early. The mark seems to be 61 PS

I found another with full marks. It is a Trinity posy pot by Abbots Bury pottery.

You do seem to have found that it is a potter that works or worked in Abbotsbury in Dorset (near the Swannery) but the initial signature of the potter is still a mystery.

Roger Ross Turner alongside his wife Hilda worked at Abbotsbury in the 1950's , the incised mark could be theirs , I had a slipware owl lamp by him posted somewhere on here , this could be an experimental piece by them .

Different glaze, plus second has marks on all three pot bases, first picture shows at least one pot base unmarked.

List of designs made at Abbotsbury Pottery by Roger Ross Turner

Post by marie anne on Fri Aug 16, 2013 7:19 pm

I've seen a posting on this website for an owl lamp by Roger Ross Turner, and also Abbotsbury Pottery trinity posy pots.  I thought it might be useful in future for people researching such pieces if I  uploaded an image of this card listing the output of the Abbotsbury Pottery.  It came with a 'cockie pot'  - oversize tankard decorated with cockerels.

Looking again, both pots are by TR. The mark on the upper image is '5 TR 9' rather than 'PS 61'

I've seen others like this also attributed to Roger and Hilda Turner of Abbotsbury Pottery. Seems to be one if their standard wares, rather than experimental.
I think the mark is probably RT for Roger Turner.
