Mark

Description & date

various printed marks, often with the name of the pattern.

Sometimes the trade mark "Royal Blue Ironstone"

1965-1980

The use of the unicorn is characteristic of Enoch Wedgwood.

 


NOTE: the use of date marks such as:-

"est 1835"
"founded in 1835"

Enoch Wedgwood (Tunstall) Ltd was formed in 1965.

Prior to this the company was "Wedgwood & Co" who were formed in 1860 (to 1965).

Originally the company was Podmore Walker & Co (part of the "& Co" was an Enoch Wedwood) who formed the company in 1835.
This is where the date comes from in these markings.

Is was not unusual for potters to use a date of the original founding company or the date the factory was first built - they were trying to give an appearance of age and stability to their products.
