MB in a square.

Any chance of a photo? Margaret had many marks, but I won't be able to check them until I get home.

Hmmmm there are quite a few MB marks in the Potters Marks book, but I can't tell if any of them have a square surround .......
You can send a photo of the mark to the site on newzealandpottery@gmail.com and I will load it here for you if you like, plus a photo of the pot would be helpful too.

That's a nice looking piece, but I don't know who the mark belongs to.
Perhaps someone will know .......

Not clear in picture but this is a three sided piece that is 30cm across each side.
Rough, bark-like texture.
