That's quite a coincidence, Gail, because several of the database editors have been discussing this very mark. It has traditionally been attributed to Joseph Heath of Tunstall (1828-1841) but recently has been found with an initial mark for Thomas Ingelby, who was at the same pottery Joseph Heath later had. So it's not as clear cut an attribution as we once thought - PROBABLY Heath, as he potted much longer than Ingelby, who only worked for about a year (1835-1836). But we can't be totally sure without a maker's mark, or unless it's a pattern we know one potter or the other produced.
