Re: Registry Marks
I did find one example in my collection. "Rustic Scenery" by Joseph Clementson was registered in 1842 and nearly every piece I've seen in this pattern has the diamond registry mark. The sample I bought, which at the time I lamented that it didn't have the diamond mark, does have the firm's makers mark. Its possible that Clementson was making this pattern before the Design and Registration system came out in 1842 and when his pattern was registered, included the diamond mark to indicate so. Its also entirely possible that one of the workers 170 years ago simply forgot to apply the diamond mark to the back...
