Here is a gorgeous 8" Winchcombe jug with a super glaze. It only has the Winchcombe mark so who made it is anyone's guess but it so reminds me of a Ray Finch jug which is a full 12" tall and marked with Finch's dot.

Nice piece. But then that is exactly the secret of Winchcombe's continuing success over near 100 years. Their remarkable level of very high quality sustained over a long period. Because of that quality it is nice to think that it might be by Ray Finch. But he was a smart business man, and knew the value of his personal imprimatur. The idea that he 'forgot, to sign pieces seem a but tenuous.

The Winchcombe Pottery is and was fundamentally a pottery that by and large produced functional pots in a limited number of patterns for use, this being one of them.

Most of the pots that Ray made during his many years at the pottery would have just had the pottery mark and sold as such.

This might or might not have been made by Ray and no one is ever going to know.

Thanks for your input Philpot & Studio Pots. Whoever made the 8" jug was clearly heavily influenced by Ray Finch as the similarity in style & pattern to the 12" jug is plain to see.

I appreciate I'm never going to know who actually threw the jug but that does not lessen my appreciation of the piece, I think it's a stunner.

Regards,

Jay.

All the potters at this time would have either trained under Ray or his son, who trained under Ray. They were making standard ranges of wares that were all the same shapes but this a small number of surface decorations. This decoration is one of the glaze/decoration ranges and so there would have been thousands of jugs of this size and with this decoration made over the years, long with all of other function wares with the same pattern.
