Hi, does anyone know if Winchcombe produce unmarked pottery? I’ve picked up this small jar (10cm high) which has an identical glaze to one of my Winchcombe jugs and the clay body looks pretty similar, but there’s absolutely no mark. Can it be Winchcombe or is it coincidence?

It certainly looks very Winchcombe. It might just be that they just forgot to put a mark on this piece. It happens, we are all human. It might well have been sold as a second.

Thank you, that’s good to know! Winchcombe is one of the few potteries I’m not to bad at identifying first time so I’m glad there’s a chance I’m right here too.

Could be - the glazes certainly match. However, I’ve found this in Winchcombes standard range which is the same size so I think Winchcombe is likely, although I think mine isn’t recent:-Unmarked Winchcombe? Is that possible? 4038df10
