The slip trailed jug below was around 15 inches tall with only the Winchcombe seal.

A number of years ago Ray Finch confirmed that he has made it in the early 1950s. The picture makes it look rather "tight" in decoration and form but I seem to remember that in reality it looked less so.

Took the opportunity on Monday to finally visit Winchcombe, unfortunately there was no one working but the showroom was open. Prices were very reasonable IMO apart from Ray Finch pieces which carry a hefty price tag. The last picture with the red cloth are the Ray Finch pots.

Anne Whittlesey, Winchcombe Pottery

Post by Davee on May 29th 2013, 5:10 pm

I bought this small cut sided salt glaze vase while at Winchcombe, thought it was a bit different to the regular stuff. Not sure who the potter is and the lad looking after the shop didn't have a clue either.

Winchcombe bud vase, personal mark AH - Anne Whittlesey

Post by climberg64 on December 1st 2013, 3:04 pm





I bought this from the Winchcombe Pottery but failed to ask whose the mark was. Does anyone know?

Thanks for looking.

Info from Studio-Pots:  I think that the personal mark is that of Anne Whittlesey, who was working there from the early 2000s until 2009. She added he personal seal from around 2005.

I think it is the personal mark of Anne Whittlesey, who left Winchcombe and started her own pottery along with David Wilson, also ex-Winchcombe, in Somerset.

It is by Sid and if it is red earthenware, which the images suggest, then this ceased to be produced from the early 1960s.

The decoration does suggest the end of the earthenware period.

We bought this approaching 30 years ago. Ray Finch was there potting at the time. We stood & watched for a good while & he was totally focussed on what he was doing. He paused & my wife asked if she could take his photo. His response was a terse "Depends how much you want it." and he carried on working. Nice shot!

Unfortunately the bottom of the mark has been mashed by a finger so I can't tell if there was originally a dot there or not. The 'pseudo-dot' next to the down stroke of the P is just a grain in the clay.

Winchcombe, but who is potter please.

Post by lindylou08 on September 10th 2014, 6:48 pm

Hi

This has the Winchcombe mark with another set of letters (ST) vertically to the left. Probably not Sidney Tustin as the mark I've seen attributed to him the letters are side by side.
There is an image of what looks like the same mark in the Winchcombe thread but it doesn't appear to have been identified. So any ideas gratefully received

 

Thanks

Sidney Tustin but it is a very unusual mark. I don't recall seeing it before.

Sid didn't retire until 1978 and they stopped making earthenware in 1963 so he made many thousands of stoneware pots. I would guess that the mark is from the early 1960s - there was a period when the pottery was producing stoneware and earthenware.

Thanks for the info SP, I have a lot of S.T. but no stoneware, funny the mark is all-in-one, rather than
separate seals, never seen that either.

I haven't seen the mark either. The WP part is like that used by Ray Finch in the early 1960s hence my guess at the date.

Although he will have thrown thousands of stoneware items, I would imagine that a large proportion would have just had the Winchcombe mark, as they would have been items for the various standard ware ranges.
