About 20 years ago we did our geriatiric OE and one day in Cormwall we visited
a little pottery about half way between Bodmin & Weymouth and bought this little pot as a memento. Nothing special but the only small piece available. It was an over from a commercial order. Nothing special but has been in use in the kichen ever since to hold fresh herbs. But Lo and behold when I look at it closely it has a potters mark and then it has THE Potters mark in the form of a thumbprint.
Thanks must go to the Forum for this discovery. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy re My First & Only Cornish Pot Img_1115re My First & Only Cornish Pot Img_1116re My First & Only Cornish Pot Img_1117

Love the thumbprint Very Happy
This site would probably be able to tell you who the stamp belongs to ....

Thanks Ev,
Once again you have hit the jackpot. queen queen
My simple little pot has suddenly taken on a new life.
Found the pottery and the potter , Seth Cardew who now lives and works in Spain.
here are the links both the Cornwall pottery and the Spanish one , both called Wenford Bridge Pottery.

Here are the links

As you will see my little pot has a link back to Bernard Leach Wow!
My photo of the mark is actually upside down in relation to the mark shown on the Cornish ceramics site which has another mark alongside that I am unable to decipher.

Fantastic Jonno!
The Cardew surname is very well known in the pottery world, even here in NZ because of the close connection with Bernard Leach I guess and Peter Stichbury being involved with Michael Cardew Very Happy
