Makers marks

Postby gavinturner » Fri Apr 12, 2013 1:30 pm

Hi I have a vase which has no makers mark. It is stamped as Chester with the Lion, The Chester shield and a Date letter but no makers mark. What does this mean if anthing. I can't be certain about the date It is probably 1919 but may be earlier. It is also stamped with a number which is preceded by what looks like Rd so the number reads Rd595783 Any thoughts welcome Thank you Gavin Turner

Hi Gavin,

Welcome to the Forum.

Yes, it's 1919. The design registration number 595783 was issued in 1912.

Thanks Phil any significance in the absence of a makers mark? Gavin

Probably no significance at all. Maybe it was forgotten, maybe just stamped so lightly that it's been polished away. If you post a picture of the whole vase somebody might be able to attribute it to a particular maker.
