I tend to use the subheading when items are identified but no dedicated thread exists, if I then notice there are several pieces existing I create a thread and transfer all the data

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.

I guessed so too Davee, I have a couple of other unmarked terracotta pieces that
have similar decoration, and are probably from the same period.

Ray Finch Marked Winchcombe 25cm Fruit Bowl

Post by stardust* on July 15th 2015, 6:28 pm

I have this large Winchcombe bowl, about 25cm wide, which I have been told is by Ray Finch himself. The WP mark has a dot and is very angular. is this Ray Finch 1970's?
Also does anyone know why it has a split, would this be a mistake in production, would it affect the way the bowl is valued as a piece?
Sorry about the fuzzy stuff, it had a piece of felt firmly glued to the base when I bought it, and the glue is very stubborn to get off!

I was told that Winchcombe pieces marked with a dot where by Ray Finch himself
As for the crack, looks like a firing crack. May have been sold as s second or taken home by an assistant.

It's Ray's personal mark from the early 1970s.

The firing crack seems to have occurred in the biscuit firing i.e. before glazing. I suspect it was a faint hairline that wasn't noticed and it was glazed and then opened wider to be filled with glaze during the glaze firing.

Thought it might be 70's, thanks for that and also for explaining the crack, I can see where the glaze has sunk in now.
Still...all part of the history behind my fruit bowl. (I don't really use it..it's displayed safely on a shelf)

Hi
Assuming this is a piece of Winchcombe is it possible to identify the potter - maybe from the decoration? Grateful as ever for any thoughts


 

Thanks

It's not possible to say who the potter was, as the workforce made a number of different ranges of functional ware with specific glazes and decoration as required.

Maybe the person who made this item could or someone else working there at the time, as the wavy lines look weakly executed.

Here's a coffee pot which may be Winchcombe, but it doesn't have a mark.

What do the experts think?

The "updated" WP on the jug was I believe first used in 1978 but is still used.

The pouring lip on the Ray Finch coffee pot that I photographed is typical of much of Winchcombe's production of jugs/ lidded pouring vessels.................. but I found a picture of a coffee pot made by Ray in 1979 with a spout like yours, cycladelic.

Thanks, SP... it is quite a fancy spout and the pot is very well made, which made me think it was one of Ray Finch's.

Unusual colour for Winchcombe? I'm more used to seeing this glaze on Aylesford Pottery but I dont think they did this shape

Ray didn't use a dot to signify that it had been made by him on earthenware. He used other marks and then from 1954/5 none until the end of the earthenware period ........... so it could possibly be by Ray.

Thanks SP, I didn't realise that, and yes, all my other terracotta pieces have the RF mark.
