I think it is the personal mark of Anne Whittlesey, who left Winchcombe and started her own pottery along with David Wilson, also ex-Winchcombe, in Somerset.

It is by Sid and if it is red earthenware, which the images suggest, then this ceased to be produced from the early 1960s.

The decoration does suggest the end of the earthenware period.

We bought this approaching 30 years ago. Ray Finch was there potting at the time. We stood & watched for a good while & he was totally focussed on what he was doing. He paused & my wife asked if she could take his photo. His response was a terse "Depends how much you want it." and he carried on working. Nice shot!

Unfortunately the bottom of the mark has been mashed by a finger so I can't tell if there was originally a dot there or not. The 'pseudo-dot' next to the down stroke of the P is just a grain in the clay.

A large pair of stoneware vases, the necks are slightly different shapes though.
10 inches high, lovely ash glaze that shows up well in sunlight, maroon interior.

Does anyone recognise the potter's seal? Looks like JD ot DJ.

They are by Don Jones, who worked at the pottery from 1950 until 1971 but potted from 1958 onwards. I suspect they are from the end of his time there, as for much of the Sixties the policy was for pots to be anonymous. He potted at home after leaving Winchcombe.

As these two Don Jones pieces do not have the Winchcombe Pottery mark, shouldn't they really be in a separate Don Jones thread?

ideally yes but we have dozens of threads where crossovers are present

If you put Don Jones in the subheading it'll be searchable.

Gotta agree with SP on this one, they are not Winchcombe Pottery.

Bit like putting John Malby's current pots in the Lowerdown Pottery thread, in my opinion.

However, I do think it's worth leaving a picture of his mark in this thread for referance, as it appears to be the same as the personal seal he used while at Winchcombe.
