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

I have unearthed a little Flyer/leaflet from Winchcombe pottery.
Love to scan it, but copyright etc.
It has an 01248 phone prefix, so must be post-1995.

It lists members of the Workshop as:
Ray Finch
Mike Finch
Eddie Hopkins
Fergus Wessel
Ed. Turfrey

A couple of names to conjure with.

i would say the same as Wesley on being blackmailed by his courtesan Harriet Wilson with publication of her memoirs.

"Publish and be dammed"

Wellington had a "vigorous sexual appetite" and many amorous liaisons during his marriage to Kitty. He enjoyed the company of intellectual and attractive women for many decades, particularly after the Battle of Waterloo and his subsequent ambassadorial position in Paris. The British press lampooned this side of the national hero.[194] In 1824, one liaison came back to haunt him, when Wellington received a letter from a publisher offering to refrain from issuing an edition of the rather racy memoirs of one of his mistresses Harriette Wilson, in exchange for financial consideration. It is said that the Duke promptly returned the letter, after scrawling across it, "Publish and be damned".[231] However, Hibbert notes in his biography that the letter can be found among the Duke's papers, with nothing written on it.[232] It is certain that Wellington did reply, and the tone of a further letter from the publisher, quoted by Longford, suggests that he had refused in the strongest language to submit to blackmail.[233]

You can scan and post it. It’s advertising ephemera, meant to be thrown away when it’s past the date it’s advertising so it’s classed as rubbish, so copyright won’t be a problem unless you amended/altered it.

Now can we Id the people?

Ed Turfrey trained there from 1995-2002
Fergus Wessel trained there 1994-2000. In 2003 he set up Stoneletters Studio near Oxford, specialising in heraldic carving and fine lettering in stone.

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?

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.
