I think that is should be up the other way, and it is SM. Now I have seen this recently, but it may have been an auction on TM.

The only confirmation I can find that it is Stephen is a Pinterest pin, which is not 100% reliable, but probable. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/198228821072693149

Hi haselnuss this mark is in the Potter's Marks book as Stephen McCarthy, so I will add it to the Marks Gallery Smile

How similar are those two marks????
One is impressed in a square surround and the other seems to have been applied with a ceramic stamp and has a round surround.
If we find that it isn't right we can always change it at a later date fortunately.

That sounds good and it is unlikely that a potter in Australia potted a mug for Christchurch in 1974.
