Got a nice little jam pot.
Trying to date it and I know Sidney Tustin worked there 1927-39 and 1946–78.
I’ve only had a couple of his pieces before. Is the pattern common ?
The mark is all one impressed mark S above T with the Winchcombe mark next to it.
Is that an unusual mark or does it help date it ?
Thanks for looking.

Winchcombe stopped making earthenware in 1964. So this stoneware pot would date it to the latter end of his career. Is there a full ST there? Can't see for certain.
         Must admit to preferring Sid Tustin's earthenware work..It has a folkish charm all of its own. His stoneware work doesn't seem to have that charm, being more or less any  piece of generic 60's.70's Leach style  pot.
        Having said that, it is  still a well made attractive piece.

Might be CT for Charlie Tustin

Yes a lovely well decorated item. I have a lot of ST, but nothing like this.

Another example here -

looking though our Winchcombe thread it's not a rare mark. Seems it's one of Sid Tustin's

John Edgeler has written a paperback book on Sid Tustin.Well worth reading. https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/SearchResults?sts=t&cm_sp=SearchF-_-home-_-Results&an=&tn=SID+TUSTIN&kn=&isbn=

I have read that Sid Tustin  made over 1,000,000 pots in his time at Winchcombe, He was THE production potter, and could produce at an amazing rate. His earthenware pieces cone up reasonably frequently on eBAY, and in recent years seem to be more collectable. It is the 100th anniversary of Winchcombe in 1926, which is not that far away.
        If you are thinking of a Winchcombe collection,  Sid Tustin is a good base for it. Lots of vert nice pieces at reasonable cost. He was an excellent potter!
           Looking at that Winchcombe mark again. It is quite a vintage one. Very different from the mark on most Winchcombe standard ware. I would not be surprised if that dates it to the 60's.

I feel a hall of fame thread is well overdue

Charlie never worked there when stoneware was made.

I agree that it will be from the 1960s and early rather than late.
