  1. Pretty sure this is by rebecca rupp.Both reminisent of her vase forms (early eighties ) and pink glaze. I have a number of her small almost tiny cup and saucers. Very beautiful.Will send photo of such . Pete

    1. Thanks Pete – I just had a quick look at some of her pots online and indeed it does look like one of her pieces, please send pic!

      Just got home and looked at the potter’s mark – what I found previously undecipherable is now, thanks to your suggestion, easy to make out – and indeed does read “Rupp”!

      Thanks a lot Pete

      all the best
