to Pottery Mark on Base of Teapot Query

Dear Mrs Smoak

Many thanks for your query and photo. Unfortunately, I can't see the impressed makers mark on the photo so am unable to help.

Please send in another form with the words that are impressed on the base of the teapot and I will try to help.

UPDATE
Case possibly solved! Melissa (at least I am guessing Melissa because the name box wasn't signed) has posted some brilliant work on this one!

Teapot Mark Possibly Arthur Wood
by: Anonymous

I have a strong hunch this is an Arthur Wood teapot.

Check out this sold item from www.rubylane.com:

http://www.rubylane.com/shops/footbridgecovevintagecollectibles/item/887

It is marked 5113. The shape of the base is identical to Mrs. Smoak's 5114 teapot. You'll notice that "Made in England" and the pattern name Monarch are impressed. The Arthur Wood mark is printed on and somewhat blurry.

An identical 5113 teapot is listed on ebay. The seller remarks that it looks like it should be marked Arthur Wood, but isn't. Same mark as Mrs. Smoak's teapot.

Another small tantalizing clue that may or may not mean anything...

http://www.replacements.com has a listing for Arthur Wood pattern 5114. Of course it is one of the few patterns they don't have a picture for! But it is described as "pink rose, gold lines." If you browse through the Arthur Wood pattern pictures, they're almost all teapots. Apparently a specialty.

Take these clues for what you will, hope they help!

Hi Peter, yes it was me who posted!

I just wanted to add the info I found on the company on http://www.thepotteries.org:

"Arthur Wood, Bradwell Works, Longport, Stoke-on-Trent in operation from 1904 to 1928. From
1928 to 1989 traded as Arthur Wood & Sons Ltd. Since 1989 part of Price & Kensington Potteries, Longport. The company specialised in making teapots."

Hi Melissa

Great! I thought it was your post - who else could solve all those tricky ones with so little to go on. I think your hunch is right about Arthur Wood.

Thanks again!

Price Kensington novelty teapot
by: Melissa

Price & Kensington, Longport, was founded in 1962 from an amalgamation between Price Bros. (Burslem) Ltd. and Kensington Pottery. Much of the Grade II listed factory site is dilapidated and unused today, but there apparently is a shop open on the site. I don't know if that means the factory is still in production.

Photos of the factory:

Note the sign "Price's National Teapots" in the last pic. Possibly a specialty of Price Bros. that carried over to the new, combined company?

Examples of Price & Kensington novelty teapots "especially for the tourist trade," as the site says:

They made "normal" pots too:
