the Lowerdown cross mark was used by David Leach and the foxglove decor I believe is his as well , but I suppose others could have made them too robert tinnyunt for one .

David sold me this one also. he was a gentleman. He took his time to point out where he had left a thumb-print in the glaze. To be honest, for me, that added to the interest.

David's son, Simon, told me that he did alot of the foxglove decoration whenever he was visiting.

Am I wrong in that?
The Lowerdown cross was used on functional ware and on decorative pieces, which were sold for less than pieces with David's personal seal.

I did buy a pot once from David that just had the Lowerdown cross mark and he said that he had thrown it and decorated it. He added that he thought it was rather good so he should have put his personal seal on it as well and then he could have charged me more!

So basically the Lowerdown cross mark tells you that it was made at the pottery and could have been thrown and decorated by the same person or a different person. Going back this would have included John Maltby and Tim Andrews as well as Simon, Jeremy and Robert Tinnyunt amongst others.

Interesting to note that the foxglove was painted by different hands , Iv'e just looked at the 5 I have and although all good , some are a tad neater than others , it's not an easy thing to do unless you practice quite a bit .

John was there for 3 years in the early 1960s and other potters who worked there and subsequently went on to start their own potteries include Mary Rich, Elizabeth Raeburn and Warwick Parker.

The US potter Tom Turner has made a video of his collection which includes a porcelain vase made by David Leach in Turner's studio, so it bears Leach's mark and Turner's TT mark.

The Lowerdown mark was almost always used by apprentices. There does not seem to be a list of these anywhere. Obviously his sons. Jeremy,Simon, also John Maltby,Tim Andrews, Mary Rich. Who else?

The first one working with him in the earthenware years was Freda Sage.

His son, John, was there from 1957 until 1960 as well as the other two sons you mention.

Others included Ian Sprague, Warwick Parker, Buster Hogan (Australian), Kenji Funaki, Gary & Daphe Hatcher (USA), Robert Tinnyant, Chris Barchard, Richard Brooks (Australian), Philip Barlow (New Zealand) & Elizabeth Raeburn.

There were also students from Harrow for a period of 11 years from 1966, who came for 6-8 weeks in the summer as part of their course. David was an external examiner at Harrow during the time.

yes could be 5 guineas SP, this is a large pot -10.5" High so it is still as likely that it was made by David as well as an apprentice .

I'm afraid that without a personal mark you can't attribute them to a particular potter
