Is this a Winchcombe cup and saucer

Post by olipayton on January 25th 2017, 2:13 pm

Hi everyone, I picked these up cups and saucers at a very nice price with out really looking at the backstamp - the stamp looks like Winchcombe but not having handled much Winchombe before I am not really sure of what they should look like, any advice much appreciated.

Yes, you're right.
If it had the dot in the lower right quadrant it would be by Ray Finch himself but looks like it's just the PW for standardware. Very nice, though :)

Thank you very much Naomi. I think I was rather lucky with these three cups and saucers. We have an end of the line charity shop near to us where items go very cheap, as they have been in another charity shop for weeks without being sold, almost like a last chance before I guess being binned!

Two large Ray Finch vases

Post by r-and-f on April 27th 2017, 10:58 pm

Showing off two large Ray Finch vases just acquired.  The taller one is 14.5 inches.  I guess they must have been made in very different periods at Winchcombe.

Much prefer the glaze, shape and decoration (in that order) of the first, lovely.

Does the mark have the dot?

No dot in the usual place but it may have been made before Ray started using the dot.

£175 all in was an excellent price. Conratulations!
But if it has not got Ray Finch's mark, one always has that questioning doubt!

Just picked up two large Winchombe items.

First a Ray Finch signed oatmeal charger, then a huge 20 inch Eddie Hopkins Vase also in an Oatmeal glaze. No idea when they got potted but I have an Invoice from 1997 to show the charger cost £38 and the vase £95. think prices have changed in 20 years. No idea of that invoice is from new though as the invoice is from a woman called Pamela not a company/shop. Ideas of age welcome.

Cheers

I think they are dated by impressed mark but hard to see. Photos don't do the lovely pots justice.

We found this Winchcombe butter dish - I love as it has a raw textural feel to it
