The forum Help Elf says:-

This is one of the many marks of US firm The Taylor, Smith & Taylor Pottery and used from around 1901 to 1930. It often has the term 'vitreous' underneath - which means the ware is porcelain; fired at high temperatures and therefore non-porous without a glaze.

TST or TS&T was founded c.1899 by Col. John N. Taylor and C. A. Smith using the equipment of the Taylor, Smith & Lee Pottery. Around 1903 the firm was bought by W. L. Smith. The family went onto own the firm until 1973 when the plant was bought out by the Anchor Hocking Corporation. Known for their Lu Ray Pastel range this popular line was discontinued around the late 60's. TS&T finally ceased production in 1981.
