Bisto Serving Platter - what is the pattern name, why the numbering system?:- I believe this is from my granmother's cupboard and my mom kept it hidden in our basement. I am 57 years old, so when I say grandmother I am sure that the set is very old. I also have a set from Germany from my grandmother that I will submit. I only have some select pieces left from the set and am curious about the date of manufacture, the pattern, value etc. What is the meaning of the numbering system. Thank you for helping me trace my history.

The forum Help Elf says:-

This is the mark of a company called Bishop and Stonier Pottery, located in Hanley Staffordshire and founded in 1891 (traded until 1939). Your mark was used from 1891 - 1936. As regards numbers, this is a manufacturing identification system outside the remit of this forum (ask the Potteries Museum in Stoke-on-Trent).

With regards to identifying patterns, there is a page on this site giving instructions on how to best identify your patterns. Go to the in-house search box on the top right of this page and put in the search "pattern identification" (without the quotation marks). From there, follow the online instructions on that page.
