Rustic bowl with very deep brown almost burnt pottery colour unglazed base

Post by RVsaid on April 24th 2014, 10:36 am

Hi

I'm sure I have seen many such pieces with this decoration and this 11 inch bowl is unmarked however, I really like it. The bowl is glazed on both sides with an unglazed base of such a dark colour that it is very distinctive.

Possibly, but it's an unusual base for Coldstone. They were usually more rustic .

Could be Winchcombe - the foot looks right but difficult to say definitely from a photograph.

There was a Winchombe bowl with the same pattern sold on ebay recently, so Coldstone wasn't the only pottery doing it.

Chris Harries, who started the Coldstone Pottery, had previously worked at Winchcombe from 1948 to 1951.

It is based on English slipware decoration from the past but Winchcombe was the first studio pottery operation to decorate in this way after the Leach Pottery.

I don't feel sufficently experienced to give a definite answer as to where the bowl was made.

However, if I had seen it for sale at a fair price for an unmarked pot I would have looked at the decoration, the speckled effect in the dark glaze, the colour of the earthenware body and the finish on the foot ring and been fairly confident that it had been made at the Winchcombe Pottery. Confident enough to have bought it and offered it to someone, who knows more about earthenware Winchcombe Pottery than I do.

What I can be more confident in saying is that it is not from Coldstone (wrong coloured earthenware body) and it looks too old to be from the Beamish pottery.

I can only speak for Coldstone and agree it's not one of theirs.
I thought Beamish slipware was a lot older -19th -early 20th century - and more traditional. Items are usually yellow slip on dark brown/black slip. Either way,  not one if theirs.
