Re: Makers Mark id
Thank you George for your information and insight. The stapling was what caught my eye in the first place. The first digit on the Rd mark appears to be an 8 not 3, at certain angles the second number is unreadable. There appears to be 5 digits in total which makes sense for the date of the piece to be 1886 - 1888. Or even 1902 if the Rd # is six digits. On further research the looped mark is consistent with Minton 1886 but only as an imprinted mark not ‘painted’. Again, many thanks for your response.
