PW? Anyone recognise this mark please?

Post  ambrosia on Thu 9 Jan - 16:08

I picked this one up today because it caught my eye as it matches my Campbell Hegen jug (took a pic of the two together as well). Initials look to be PW? I can't find it on any potters mark sites, does anyone recognise it?

Yes yes yes, I know that mark! I believe it is one of Paul Wotherspoon's -SOmeone please correct me if I'm remembering wrong, but there was quite a saga involving near identical Paul WOtherspoon sunburst dishes listed on Trade ME, one with his usual mark (as in our gallery) and one with this one, which had been credited to Gwyn Williams.

That is an uncanny match with the Campbell Hegan!

oh thank you! Uncanny is right, my eyes went to it immediately since I'm always looking at the jug, they look great together.

Unfortunately I have just this morning deleted from the ipad photos I dragged from the forum when I first saw this listing and went thru and checked out all the PWs I could find. There was one very very similar to this which I believe was on a beaker-type shape, with a similar brown glaze. The mark was almost identical, with perhaps just slightly more curve as the connecting line rose from the top of the P on its way to the W.

Unfortunate timing there I'm sorry but I'm pretty sure it is somewhere on the forum. As I am still encountering many of the potters' names for the first time I do tend to forget them pretty quickly. It should be either in the named or mystery potters' marks.

I'll have a look now.

Here's the mark :
