I bought this little jug recently. It's salt glazed and well made. I can't help but think BEND GO should be Bendigo so it could be Australian, but Epsom? Can anyone help please? I've sent the photos for uploading.

I adore Bendigo pottery and have several pieces. Some have Epsom on them too.
I'm sure that it reads Bendigo and the I has disappeared in the salt glaze.
I would love to know how to date these stamps as that bottle looks old to me.
Check out this link for more Bendigo stamps, especially the last pic -

Geoff Ford's Encyclopaedia of Australian Potter's Marks [2002] says the mark with the thrower's initials were used from 1970 to 1987 for a range called 'Epsomware'.

Wow, Thanks everyone. Now I love my little jug even more. I bought it from an op shop and they had 2 pots. If I could remember which op shop I'd go back and get the other!

Where are the initials Tony?
Are they inside the stamp like the A.L. on Glenys's?

The AL is in the same place as the example Geoff Ford gives - his has A.D. for Adrian Denham and says "This mark was used in conjunction with several other potter's marks."

I found this page via google: http://www.flickr.com/groups/austpots/discuss/72157630142562364/

A.L. is Allan Letts. One of Ev's photos has the initials W.A., William Akkermans.

This has more info on Allan Letts: http://www.flickr.com/groups/austpots/discuss/72157629750741381/

Brilliant Tony cheers

I couldn't even read the first initial on my sugar bowl... so thanks again ! The jug I got in 1987 doesn't have any initials ....? Though I have a feeling that it is slipcast.
