Hi Jo

Your mark is that of E. Brain & Co Ltd from the period 1948 to 1963. They were originally called Robinson & Son (1881 - 1903). In 1963 E. Brain & Co Ltd bought out the classic name of Coalport and continued under that name until being bought out by the Wedgwood Group in 1967.

Around 1885 a gentleman called Mr E. Brain bought out his partner (Mr Robinson) at the Foley works, Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent. On his father's death W.H Brain took over. They had a well known trade mark 'EB'.

Please note:- a company called Wileman & Co also produced china from the same Foley works between 1892 and 1925 which makes life somewhat confusing. Wileman was also in partnership with J.B. Shelley over that period. In 1925 this 'Foley' company was renamed 'Shelley'.






There is yet another 'Foley' called 'Old Foley' by James Kent Ltd of Longton who produced various pottery marks out of the 'Old Foley Pottery' from 1897, but didn't market an actual 'Old Foley' brand until after 1955.

If you're interested to find out what your Foley service is worth, you might be interested the following page which I wrote especially to help visitors to my site research the value of their porcelain wares or china collections. I never do valuations myself as it is a specialist area requiring vast amounts of knowledge and research materials:

This unique identification & valuation resource allows you to see if the mark is identifiable by experts without you having to pay any money upfront. My service is unique online and is designed to protect my site visitors from wasting their time and money online.

Hope this helps.

For Home and Country
by: Laurie

Hello
I have a tea cup that has for home and country in the middle and gold maple leaves surrounding it.
I originally thought it was the emblem of the Women's Land Army that my mother joined in WWII.
Now I am not so sure. can you tell me any history of the teacup? On the bottom it says 1850 EB Foley Bone China made in England. There is also a gold 6 under this insignia.
My mother did immigrate to Ontario Canada in the late 1940's.
Thank You
Laurie
