I have been visiting my local antique
center for many years but this lovely old Winchcombe Pottery mug
is my first real find, at last a reward for all those fruitless
I'm calling it a mug rather than a tankard because it holds slightly
less than a pint. My guess is that it is from the early fifties.
In pre-dishwasher days, earthenware pots would have struggled
to survive daily washing in ceramic sinks so this is a rare surviorl.
The mug only has the Winchcombe mark so who made it? Sid Tustin
made over a million pots in his lifetime so he is a good possibility.
The fish decoration is beautifully executed.
If you have any information to help further identify the mug,
Since creating this page Ray Finch has confirmed that he
made the mug and the Worcester Antique centre has closed down.
