I guessed so too Davee, I have a couple of other unmarked terracotta pieces that
have similar decoration, and are probably from the same period.

Winchcombe Pottery - Page 3 Empty Ray Finch Marked Winchcombe 25cm Fruit Bowl

Post by stardust* July 15th 2015, 6:28 pm

I have this large Winchcombe bowl, about 25cm wide, which I have been told is by Ray Finch himself. The WP mark has a dot and is very angular. is this Ray Finch 1970's?
Also does anyone know why it has a split, would this be a mistake in production, would it affect the way the bowl is valued as a piece?
Sorry about the fuzzy stuff, it had a piece of felt firmly glued to the base when I bought it, and the glue is very stubborn to get off!

I was told that Winchcombe pieces marked with a dot where by Ray Finch himself
As for the crack, looks like a firing crack. May have been sold as s second or taken home by an assistant.

It's Ray's personal mark from the early 1970s.

The firing crack seems to have occurred in the biscuit firing i.e. before glazing. I suspect it was a faint hairline that wasn't noticed and it was glazed and then opened wider to be filled with glaze during the glaze firing.

Well made pot, can it be by Simon Rich? The mark doesn’t look exactly the same.

It looks to me as if the base is Winchcombe Pottery but the lid is not the right lid.

If you look at the second image down the stoneware body of the lid looks slightly different to that of the base and the internal glaze of the lid is different to the base.

As they say when talking about furniture, it looks like a marriage.

The possible good news is that I think the lid is quite likely from a "mottled grey brown" Leach Pottery coffee pot. They did them in 3 different glazes but whenever I seem to look on that well known internet auction site there always seems to be someone trying to pass off a Leach Pottery coffee pot (without the lid) as a jug. So that's the rare piece of the coffee pot. All you need to do is find the more common pot part. Cheeky

So do keep it.

Hi
Assuming this is a piece of Winchcombe is it possible to identify the potter - maybe from the decoration? Grateful as ever for any thoughts

It's not possible to say who the potter was, as the workforce made a number of different ranges of functional ware with specific glazes and decoration as required.

Maybe the person who made this item could or someone else working there at the time, as the wavy lines look weakly executed.

Here's a coffee pot which may be Winchcombe, but it doesn't have a mark.

What do the experts think?

The "updated" WP on the jug was I believe first used in 1978 but is still used.

The pouring lip on the Ray Finch coffee pot that I photographed is typical of much of Winchcombe's production of jugs/ lidded pouring vessels.................. but I found a picture of a coffee pot made by Ray in 1979 with a spout like yours, cycladelic.

Ray didn't use a dot to signify that it had been made by him on earthenware. He used other marks and then from 1954/5 none until the end of the earthenware period ........... so it could possibly be by Ray.

Firstly apologies for awful photo

Having read the information on Winchcombe on here and elsewhere I gather that this is pre c 1963 . It has signs of having been used for what was intended - cooking, as base has signs of burning.
BUT is it attributable to anyone ie Finch or Cardew. Could it just be standardware of the time. I found a very similar one on Google images, stating it is by Cardew but no mention as to how that conclusion was reached.

As ever I would be grateful for any thoughts

It is a fairly straightforward traditional style of slip decoration that was used at Winchcombe over a long period.

In my opinion the decoration is a little stilted to be by Cardew and think the decoration was used more in the 1950s, so after he left Winchcombe.

To me it could possibly be by Ray Finch but equally by someone else and even if decorated by Ray it wasn't a "special" piece but just part of the regular production run.

Although people will attribute items such as this to make them more desirable, I think the honest answer is that it's a typical example of Winchcombe slipware. That ought to be enough to make it desirable in any case. It's a good honest dish.
