Does anyone recognise this mark?  It looks like a trident with a bent tail - could be UL, CL or even EL.  It is a brown glazed vase with an impressed/incised design.  found in Australia but doesn't seem very characteristic of Australian studio pottery.

Most likely a UL or LU or VL , LV rather than a trident

Yes I was thinking UL. Could be LU or even possibly an E formed by the line of the L crossing the U shape. The L is a finer line than the U part which is interesting.

Thinking latterally around th "E theory", If you turn it on it's side, it could be an rE ....or even LUE , EUL, ELU UEL, ELE (or the same series with a V instead of a U ...... as potters often combine three initials into a "combined" device. ...one thing is for sure, it's frustrating..will keep an eye on this one for more threads.

Thanks Ed - it is indeed frustrating! I had no idea this would turn out to be so tricky to track down. I don't even have a clue as to what country it may have come from - I feel as though the more I look the less certain I am of anything!

When I found it I thought 'What a clear, distinctive mark - that shouldn't be too hard to find' Ha!

Could also be a WL / LW, that was my first impression.

Linthorpe had an LW: Lucy Worth. her mark was a W crossed with an L:

Similar but not identical. I'm intrigued that the impressed decoration on some Linthorpe pots is the most similar thing I have seen to this vase. I'm feeling more confident that it is British and possibly from the Middlesborough area or influenced by Linthorpe. Although it only operated for 10 years their potters went on to work elsewhere and their moulds etc were sold at auction.

I have emailed photos to the Dorman museum in Middlesborough - I hope I get a reply. I'm trying to not let myself hope it is actual Linthorpe because I don't want to get over excited if I'm just chasing shadows. Who wouldn't want to think their pot had any kind Christopher Dresser connection?!
