T ? something ? & Co Faint Maker's Mark on Large Loving Cup

Hi folks - I'm hoping someone can help with the lovely, but damaged antique loving cup, which I purchased very recently, here in Mid Wales, at my local auction.


It was only £4, due to the damage I assume, but those didn't put me off as I only wanted it for display in my reading room, which I'm trying to fill with period pieces, due to the farmhouse being mid Victorian.

I'm not an expert, preferring to buy things that appeal rather than for any monetary value. The cup was was very dirty, but once cleaned in warm soapy water the indistinct maker's mark, suddenly appeared (it wasn't visible at the auction room!), but I don't recognise it.

A large diamond/lozenge with letters inside I couldn't even begin to guess at. Above that is what looks like (to me) "V655" or similar. Underneath the diamond is obviously the actual maker but again incomplete. "T something & Co" Not much to go on I know, but keeping everything crossed someone can help?

I'd love to know the pottery which made it and if possible the approx date.

Many thanks in advance from beautiful Mid Wales -

Mark

English registry mark NEW
by: Melissa

The diamond with the lozenge above is the English registry mark, used from 1842 to 1883 to register designs. If the mark was clear you could pinpoint the registered date. The photos on the site don't enlarge so I can't make out anything more.

There's a list of companies at thepotteries.org/mark/t that suggest some ideas for the T something and Co.
