mug by Janet Wright, fish mark but no fins

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Fri 16 Oct - 14:00

Mug with fish mark. Opshop buy.

105mm H x 87 OD top, fish mark

Kat told me that the fish mark is used by Wilf and Janet Wright.
Checking the marks in the gallery I see the Janet fish points one way and the Wilf and Janet points the other, so on the strength of that I'd suggest that this one is Janet alone. Then again, Anne's mark above appears to point the Wilf and Janet way!

A further complication is that my fish appears to have no fins. ???

The mug's design is also similar to that of a piece currently for sale by Peter Rayner. Pete attributes it to Janet:

I'm saying Janet Wright but I'm certainly no expert here.
(But just for the mug.)
