Eddie Hopkins for sure. He was the stalwart for many years at Winchcombe.

This looks like a close relative of my unmarked teapot posted a few weeks ago.
Does it make me any surer that my teapot is Winchcombe?
Is it a hint it could be Eddie Hopkins?

So, less likely to be Winchcombe?
I really don't mind. I'm trying to learn what I'm looking for/ at!

No, just less likely to be like this particular Eddie Hopkins piece. Your teapot is probably a Winchcombe piece probably made by Ray Finch. Stylistically speaking that statement is dead right. Bit it is a bit like an unsigned painting, one cannot be totally and absolutely certain. Its just that there are a lot more clues in an unsigned painting than an unsigned piece of pottery.

Thanks again Philpot. I think I need to get organised and save the pictures I find with similar glaze and similar shaped pots.

Pinterest is good for that. The glaze is a type of tenmoku one with finger wipe decoration. Both fairly common, but can take on another level when they are in the hands of a master.
