As you can tell, I'm having a catch-up on unidentified marks. I have pondered this one for a while, as the mark is unclear within the glaze

It looks like RBG to me. Any thoughts?

I was thinking ARG too, I've seen a lot of an "ARG" mark about, I have seen who it belongs to somewhere, not sure whether that was here or not though...

The potter of this was a Hamilton one I think. You can't move in OP shops here without tipping over ARG's pots. I wish I could remember his name. I have heard however that he has now left the country for good. He is/was a decent potter.

Wow thank you so much for this info! cheers
We have waited a long time to find out the potter's name and she certainly was a prolific maker in all domestic ware.
Fantastic !!!!
