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.

After me saying I hadn't seen a Sidney Tustin signed stoneware piece, I picked
one up today! Nice ash glaze, but unlike Lindylou's similar pot, this one has the
more conventional 2 seal marks.

A large pair of stoneware vases, the necks are slightly different shapes though.
10 inches high, lovely ash glaze that shows up well in sunlight, maroon interior.

Does anyone recognise the potter's seal? Looks like JD ot DJ.

They are by Don Jones, who worked at the pottery from 1950 until 1971 but potted from 1958 onwards. I suspect they are from the end of his time there, as for much of the Sixties the policy was for pots to be anonymous. He potted at home after leaving Winchcombe.

As these two Don Jones pieces do not have the Winchcombe Pottery mark, shouldn't they really be in a separate Don Jones thread?

Don Jones

If you put Don Jones in the subheading it'll be searchable.

I tend to use the subheading when items are identified but no dedicated thread exists, if I then notice there are several pieces existing I create a thread and transfer all the data

Gotta agree with SP on this one, they are not Winchcombe Pottery.

Bit like putting John Malby's current pots in the Lowerdown Pottery thread, in my opinion.

However, I do think it's worth leaving a picture of his mark in this thread for referance, as it appears to be the same as the personal seal he used while at Winchcombe.
