I think that’s just a glaze spot rather than Ray Finch’s mark, but is it sitting on top of a dot in the clay

Winchcombe Pottery - Page 6 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.

Thanks eshearm - I've also edited my comment ... unfortunately I cannot mark out any dashes on the mark.
... Hang on ... do you mean the marks under the Winchccombe stamp? I can see those but I have not heard of any ID describing such things. Michael Finch pointed out the lower right hand dot being Rays?

Not sure the dashes have any significance.

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

Cool, thanks. Defo too big for standard ware 10” across and very very shallow. It is grinding me though as I know I read something a while ago with this mark on and I just can’t recall. Ah!!! Thanks as always for your knowledge em xxxx

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.

No-one else at Winchcombe at that time was throwing pots as large as that.

Winchcombe Pottery - Page 6 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.

Thank you Crawford.
It certainly doesn't resemble a W though and the stamp looks to have been firmly impressed, to my eyes at least.

I think it’s one of the newer stamps. Everyone makes and uses their own stamp so there is some variation between them. This looks like an apprentice piece tbh

Thank you Naomi, very grateful for your input.
I like it, other than the fact that someone used it to hold keys or change, scratched to high heaven, unfortunately.

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

My apologies, I moved it in readiness to merge it with the main Winchcombe thread. If members don’t know then it’s possible that visitors to the forum will, and its easier for them to find such threads when they’re in that section of the Forum. Winchcombe Pottery is the best place to ask.  I’ll move this back to ID my pottery and merge this thread with the main Winchcombe thread if & when you get an answer

I just hope you are not getting Auctionitus! Laughter Winchcombe has going for nearly 100 years now (1926 founded). They have been making this stabdard ware stoneware for nearly 60 of those. They have been a production pottery for most of that time, with a number of potters producing a lot of items. In relative studio pottery terms, there is a lot of it around. Beware of paying too much, even if its has a specific individua stamp on it. Winchcombe collectors are very choosy.
As to the above jug. Is that an impressed mark, or one in ink or painted? If the latter, it could mean anything.

I haven’t bought anything this was in a shop and I took the photos of an item for sale as I noted yet another item with the same dashes. As I have said this is the 3rd item in as many months with the same marks.
