pottery mark R & D below lion standing on left hind leg
by Jenny Davies
pottery mark R & D below lion standing on left hind leg:- I have 12 plates and 12 saucers, cups and sugar bowl etc. it is a daisy type design, edged with a lace decoration all in blue and very old and worn. On the back is a lion standing on its left hind leg and below is R & D, all in blue.
In red below is hand written 2050 with a 3 or 5 below the 5.
Can you tell me when and where it was made. I'm particularly interested to know its age.
many thanks for your time.
