I think this is British, but I can't read the name of the pottery above the bird, and I'm not coming up with anything by searching studio pottery bird marks. Anyone recognise it?

Assuming the second word is "Pottery", the bird, and the shape of the letters, how about something like "Rookes Pottery"?

I couldn't find a picture of their mark (the pottery is now closed), but after looking at examples of their work online I'm going with Rookes Pottery (David & Catherine Rooke, Hartington, Derbyshire) . Many thanks.  Happy

Help again please. Does anyone know this studio pottery mark, and what looks like a Raven/Crow including something xxxxx Pottery, can't read it or make it out. Large blue & white agate jug, possibly Devon Pottery. When I get time, will take a picture of the jug, I will upload.

Thanks

Again Thanks
