Winchcombe Pottery - Page 5 Empty Winchcombe pottery bowl - dash marks?

Post by eshearm February 8th 2019, 7:55 am

Hi guys, maybe dreaming but i vaguely recall reading something that said the two dashes below  the Winchcomb mark denoted a specific artist. Is this true or have I just made that up!!

I know that one spot to the lower right of the Winchcombe mark is for Ray Finch ... perhaps someone else can give you more info.

Winchcombe standard ware by the looks of it. I don’t think the dashes are relevant. Each potter uses their own PW stamp so if you can match it to pieces that also have a potter’s personal stamp then in theory you could say who made it but to be honest unless it has the dot for Ray Finch then which assistant made it isn’t really relevant as far as collectors are concerned

An earthenware cider jar from the 1950s. It just has the Winchcombe seal but it would have almost certainly have been made by Ray Finch.

Winchcombe Pottery - Page 5 Empty Tenmoku bowl by Winchcombe pottery

Post by abstract toad July 24th 2019, 6:43 pm

A lovely bowl, nice tenmoku glaze which seems very well controlled to my eyes. The mark looked like Winchcombe, until I put my specks on. The line through the P looks like a curve, as opposed to a W. Any ideas gratefully received.

Here is further evidence these marks are not here by accident and a specific potter is making them, any further ideas greatly received xx

Winchcombe pottery is still a working potter of course, with a superb quality range.
http://www.winchcombepottery.co.uk/
It might be that these marks come from the pottery of the last few years and collectors are not aware of their significance. They could be anything of course, not just a potters mark. This is a a collector's site, and we do not have much interest or knowledge of ultra-modern work. Have you inquired from the pottery?

Winchcombe Pottery - Page 5 Empty Sidney Tustin Winchcombe jam pot, unusual mark

Post by benwilliams September 17th 2019, 7:35 pm

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.

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

Tenmoku lidded pot with thrown handle.
Can anybody tell me what period this is likely to have been made?

Impressed A.H I think, who is the potter and is it definitely Winchcombe?  Found with an interesting collection of vintage studio pottery, more of which later

Definitely Winchcombe. They stopped making earthenware in 1964, which makes it relatively early. As for the AH. Not one of the usual potters marks of those years. Not one I have seen before. Interesting. 4/6 is the equivalent of 22.5 pence.

Many thanks, I'd realised it was pre decimal date but didn't realize they stopped using earthenware in 1964.

Interesting . I found a similar one by Chris Harris before he set up Coldstone etc, so that would date it to around the 50s. And another one here with just a Winchcombe stamp
