Looking at the glaze, it appears to be that which he used at the beginning of his time at Lowerdown when he used red earthenware. Although difficult to see the mark looks like L with a D sitting in it. Is it red earthenware?

It is red earthenware and when held in the light, I can just make out a D inside the L.

When using red earthenware (1956 - 1961) the L D mark seems to have been used all of the time (I can't be 100% certain but can't remember seeing the L+ mark on this early earthenware).

He did have assistants at the time.......................... but the mark is LD so it's fair to say it is by David Leach

Looks like David Leach to me, but no personal mark that I can see. The spout is broken but I still love it.Lowerdown Pottery - Page 3 00910

It’s Lowerdown standardware but David Leach wasn’t the only potter so without a personal stamp it’s not possible to attribute it to him personally

David did much of the Standard Ware stuff in the later years (after Tim Andrews) and intentionally did not put his own mark on it so that he had things at different prices in his showroom. We use a couple of bowls everyday with the Lowerdown mark only and we know that David made them as he told us when he sold them to us. However, they were made for use and not to be collected and attributing any of these piece to him seems a little unfair to the potter to my mind. However, I think it fair to say that the decoration on this teapot is too clumsy for it be David's.
