Kingswood Pottery - Large Vintage Studio Pottery Lamp Base -UPDATE 2

Isn't it amazing! I came to France twelve years ago ... and I still have boxes in "the barn" to unpack!!

...And here is one of my "discoveries".

This is a large (12"/30cm high by 10"/25.5cm) Studio Pottery Lamp base superbly hand thrown and turned. But who made it?

I am going to find out ... I hope!

UPDATE ... The mark is KP (with the front of a gondola image, plus "MADE IN ENGLAND". This is a retailers stamp ... in this case likely Grayshott ... I've contacted them in the hope that they might shed some more light ... stay tuned!

UPDATE 2 ... I contacted Mick Dixon who used to work for Grayshott 1970-74 ... and he confirmed that it was either done by him or Roy Saywell. The KP almost definitely stands for Kingwood Pottery, the retail name for all hand thrown ceramics coming from Grayshott.
