Antique Bone China Answers To Royal Worcester Backstamp Question:-

We have a Royal Worcester antique bone china set of cups and saucers that we are unable to date or find the name of the pattern.

Just wondered if you could help. The cups are coffee cup in size, with the marking

Royal Worcester (R)

Fine Bone China England.

There are no dots.

The pattern is gold rimmed, flowers but not in colour, monochrome only, quite plain in shape.

Thanks!!

Stewart

Hi Stewart

Thanks for gettting in touch.

From the info you supplied, my guess is your Royal Worcester coffee service dates from the 1956 to 1972 production era, as in these years there were marks with 'R' which may not have had dots added for the years. 1956-1958 were mainly associated with 'R' mark with dots.

Here's some info which will help everyone with their Royal Worcester backstamp dating:

Puce marks date from 1900 to 1941

1941 to present: black backstamps

Note:
Green marks used for:
Boer War Soldiers
First World War Soldiers

Blue marks used for:
limited series only

Red marks:
Very few.

Royal Worcester - Basic Marking System

Four linked W's crest surmounted by a crown:

Begun 1862

1891 - the words 'ROYAL WORCESTER ENGLAND' appear ringed around the crest.

Every following year until 1903 a dot is added near the crown

To the left side - even years

To the right - odd years.

1904 dots are also put under the crest:

as follows:

One for each year until 1915

1916 A star is used to replace all the dots accumulated to that date.

Then a single dot added for each year through to 1927.

Puce Marks

1928 Small square
1929 Diamond
1930 Three horizontal lines
1931 OO (two circles)
1932 OOO (three circles)
1933-1938 Three circles and one dot
1939 Then a dot for each year

Black Marks 1938 To Date

B-1 Black One






1938 Three circles and 6 dots
1939 Three circles and 7 dots
1940 Three circles and 8 dots
Blue wavy line sometimes added for 1938, 1939 and 1940

B-2 Black Two

1941 Three circles and 9 dots
1942 Three circles and 10 dots
1943 The black mark with no date code
1944 Bone china in large letters
1945 to 1947 The black mark with no date code
1948 Bone china in small letters

B-3 Black Three

1949 Black mark with V

B-4 Black Four

1950 Black mark with W
1951 to 1954 Black mark with W and one
1955 dot added for each year

B-5 Black Five

1956 R and 6 dots
1957 R and 7 dots
1958 R and 8 dots

1956 to 1972 Black mark which may or may not have dots added for years

1988 Black mark with M inside a diamond (M replaces R)

1989 Black mark with N inside a diamond (N replaces M)

1900 to date:

Black mark with R inside a circle (Reverting back to the R inside a circle but with lithographer's numbers added to indicate the year).

Hope that helps!

royal worcester
by: chris

hi, i have got a gold coloured royal worcester coffee set but the mark on the bottom of all items has a circle with just one looped W inside. at the top is "royal worcester" underneath is "porcelian" with "made in england" underneath that and finally "s/s" underneath that, all marks are in green. I have not seen any marks like that on other item so is this a fake. many thanks

Commonwealth Parliamentary Association United Kingdom Branch royal Worcester Fine Bone China

Hi I have a soapdish/trinket box! Not sure which it is! It is white with a gold rim around the base and lid with the palace of westminster symbol on the lid. It also has an R in a circle underneath the crest of Four linked W's surmounted by a crown. I can't quite see if it is 51 in the centre of the crest or another small symbol! I was wondering if you had any idea of the year and if it is worth anything?

Also have couple of pieces of green wedgwood with the palace of westminster symbol.

Regards

Michelle
