Hi Gary

You successfully managed to upload 3 photos thanks. Unfortunately, they were all of the base!

Without seeing the teapot, I can only give you details of the maker known to use this exact same single 'B' pottery mark.

Worcester Royal Porcelain used this mark during their Barr Period (Barr and Flight & Barr) 1792 to c1806. Your mark is identical to this incised mark of Barr. However, most wares of this period are either in museums or important collections, so the likelihood of this being genuine is ...... well, I'll let you decide.

Even a fake would be interesting. The person faking the mark knew precisely what the Barr mark looked like and was able to copy it exactly. Very interesting item in either case.

I have not set eyes on many teapots from the Barr 1792 to 1806 period, but the ones I have seen have not had vegetables on them. They are the typical sophisticated delicate fine porcelain of the period in 'classical' designs.

Continue your research from here.

B pottery/porcelain mark
by: Sue

I too have a piece of blue and gold porcelain with a small blue B only on the bottom. I know it is very old as it was given to my by my mother whose mother gave it to her. I have done some research and it could be Flight & BArr. The mark was found here: http://www.oldandsold.com/pottery/greatbritain38.shtml and is number 6. How can I confirm this and where and who can I send a pic of both bowl and mark.
