Hello Judy Judy Judy (as Cary Grant might have said!)
Thanks for your query. Sorry it's raining in Massachusetts. In Olde England, it's sunny right now!
I am not an expert, as I keep saying, but I love it when I have answers for my visitors.
'Standard China' was a brand name / trademark of Chapmans Longton Ltd, Albert Works, Longton, Staffordshire potteries. The graphic at the top of the page gives
you the dates of the various marks. They are not to be confused with another Longton firm called David Chapman & Sons later renamed Chapman & Sons (Stoke-on-Trent) Ltd, then later still Atlas China Co Ltd.
The pottery marks associated with Chapmans Longton Ltd, founded 1916 are:Standard ChinaRoyal StandardRoyal Mayfair (bone china) 1938 - 1941
As you can see from the above graphic at time of writing there was a lone saucer by Chapmans (Royal Standard brand) on sale on UK eBay for £2.95 GBR plus £2.95 GBR P&P.
