Many of the pots was sold and used by local restaurants and hotels. I remember being there one day and someone from a local restaurant was there with a large lid in his hand. They had broken the bottom of a large lidded casserole and the man had brought along the lid to match the size and pattern. The good news was that he found exactly what he was looking for. However, the old lid was a better fit than the one being sold with it, so he still ended up with an extra lid.

But why would a glaze trial piece be fully decorated?

I vaguely recall being told that Ray Finch marked pieces with glaze codes every so often. It was obviously sold on to the public so there’s no reason why it wouldn’t be fully decorated. Waste not want not.

I stumbled on this document online once, a scanned image of a document written by Ray Finch talking about marks at Winchcome - dont know if has been added to the forum at all?..

Thought might be useful...  one for Naomi...
