Pottery Marks Newsletter

As you might guess, our newsletter this month takes a look at the all-important subject of understanding and interpreting pottery marks.

There’s often more information available on the base of a pot than you expect- they’re a bit like the DNA of a human being (well, almost…) Certainly most marks usually provide enough information to give a fairly clear picture of the age, design and manufacture of the piece.

Take a look here to read the newsletter itself, or check out our database of pottery marks, here.
