Thanks for the images. They show I should never jump to conclusions! I expected your pattern number to start with either 1/ or Y/. In fact, the pattern number is W26 and the L1 9200 is W26 with 17 beneath. The 17 and 85 on the plates are the decorators' numbers to ensure they got paid, as they were on piece work. The M.and S. are probably the gilders'numbers to ensure they got paid.
I don't think this pattern has a name, although it is similar to several other Copeland Spode patterns - it is so typical of them. The outline pattern would have been printed and then hand-painted and gilded.
W26 was introduced early in 1941 and would have been for export only during the War, so it it is found more often in the US than in England. Your pieces bear impressed date codes for 1950, one with an L above for July.
