Ray Finch of course did have his off-days. This plate was not quite up to his best.

Its Salt Glaze with some extra decorative effects. You can tell Ray Finch pieces by the little dot, as on this one. Sometimes they can be hard to see.

Lovely! Nice mark,  Jumping For Joy bet you were happy when you turned that one over. Pottery collecting is a bit like a treasure hunt on a massive scale, where someone has hidden the treasures all across the country in charity shops and it's our job to hunt them down.

So good to know they are still there...was getting a bit depressed about nice things being posted.

Nice early pre-war mark as well. These sort of pieces are quite in demand now. That is a Very Good Buy!

This early Winchcombe Terracotta, same as the Tustin pieces, seems very soft,
and damages very easily.

The mark is most likely to have been used by Ray between 1949 and 1952 so I think that you meant to write "early post-war", philpot?

The general opinion is that Ray only used that mark between 1949 and 1952.

It’s Winchcombe Pottery’s WP mark. The dot means its Ray Finch’s personal stamp
