I picked up this HUGE bowl (32cm diameter, 14cm high) thinking the glaze and decoration looked distinctly Winchcombe, but it is unmarked and the glaze body doesn’t look right. Any thoughts? It’s beautifully made.

It looks like winchcombe to me. Often only glazed halfway down bowl. Here is one of similar dimensions 14x30cm

Thank you - you’re right, the shape and decorating style match exactly. I’ll go with unmarked but most likely Winchcombe then.

Nice bowl. Real pity it is not marked. Winchcombe unmarked is about right. Although there were a lot of potters who went through Winchcombe who potted in the Winchcombe. It was a very successful style!
