Studio Pottery Jar - ID = Seypot
« on: August 08, 2007, 07:04:50 PM »
Hi folks,

I bought this today. I think it a really nice pot but I can't track down the rather scratchy marks. The last word could be 'pottery' but that's perhaps not much help!
Usually I tend to run a mile if things don't have a printed backstamp  :-[
With this forum I'll be able to learn lots. I've learn't loads already  ;D

Thanks
Robbo

I'm fairly certain you've got the mark upside down..could we have some dimensions as well.

Thanks, Martyn.

Thanks folks, I think you're right. Having transposed the marks, the central monogram looks like "GR" or perhaps "C/R".
16cm high inc. lid, 14cm diameter max.

The bottom word looks like Seychelles to me? but definately this way up.

Top word 'Safpot' or 'Sefpot' or similar

GP in the middle then.  ;D
