Kristen Burk’s piece poses an interesting dilemma

Thank you Kristen for sending this image. The interesting dilemma is that the type of decoration and the backstamp on the base don’t seem to come from the same period.

The impressed base marking is usually found around 1881-3 but the type of decoration is normally 1920s. Perhaps Peter Beckett, who is more knowledgable than me will correct me.

Peter wrote the book entitled “A Victorian Pottery, Thom Foresters’ “The Forgotten Giant” ISBN 0-9535239-6-9 and to whom I am indebted for much of the information I have collected.
