Could be Frank Clarence Mars or Paul Michaels which would explain the M&M mark. Hmmm bit of a mystery Red

You know it has a sort of Doris Dutch look to it, not as fine but that sort of style. She did surface decoration a bit like that with a needle. But its not her mark.

The mark is Mike Truebridge. It is Not a Doris Dutch or pupil of hers. This is clear in the Potters Marks Book.

Even though the MM mark superficially looks like Truebridge, I think there are enough differences to rule him out. Here is the Truebridge mark, note how MT has an angular mark where as the MM mark has curves.

MM potters mark help please Pbucket

From what I have seen of Mikes work this is nothing like his style. It is much closer to a Doris Dutch style. Doris had many many students. But it could be anyone when it comes down to it...... I should see is I can find a similar DD pot in my archives....
