Winchombe Pottery handled, lidded egg coddler


Reference: 03185

Description: A Winchcombe studio pottery, handled, lidded, slipware egg coddler. Green and brown glaze, so typical of Winchcombe Pottery. The Winchcombe Pottery dates back to 1926, although there previously had been potteries on the same site. It was started by Michael Cardew when he left St Ives, having been a student, a potter and a friend to Bernard Leach. Cardew was joined by Elijah Comfort, Sidney Tustin, and later, Sidney's brother, Charlie. In 1939 Ray Finch took over the management and after the war bought it from Michael Cardew.

Dimensions: H: 9cm (3.5") Diam: 10cm (4")

Additional Information: Throughout the post-war years, Finch enjoyed the company of many potters - including, Colin Pearson, John Solly and John Leach. Various members of the Finch family were involved in management and production. Mike Finch has run the pottery since 1979.

Price: £35
