Potpourri

I found this potpourri jar on eBay at the end of last year.  It's painted in XK pattern by a decorator whose mark (below) I've seen several times before on pots from the first half of the 1920's, but who isn't listed in the reference books.  The pot is relatively early (mid 1920's), and though made from the usual red earthenware it feels like it,s been fired at a higher temperature and thrown quite thinly, perhaps to allow for the piercings. 
Anyone with ideas about the mark, please let me know.
