Large unsigned pot - Winchcombe?

Post by Johners2000 on February 18th 2017, 11:12 am

Hi, I have this pot and lid that have no marks at all and wondered if it might be Winchcombe.

Nothing about it suggests that it was made at the Winchcombe Pottery to me.

Not finding a match. Casserole pots are very difficult to ID without a mark.

Spookily I went out today and found a piece of Winchcombe pottery. I can see now that it's not.

Obviously, your little Winchcombe lidded earthenware pot by Sid Tustin is earlier. The knob is a different shape to the larger tenmoku lidded casserole but at Winchcombe the handle on larger pieces was mostly a strap rather than a knob. When they used the knob on stoneware pieces at Winchcombe it was generally on smaller pieces and tea/coffee pots. They did use it on stoneware casseroles for a time but when they did that the lid fitted inside a raised part of the body like your small earthenware piece rather than hang over, as it does on your tenmoku casserole above.

Hope that makes sense?
