Dear Board members,
I would be grateful for your input on this tea and coffee set's marks:http://i1102.photobucket.com/albums/g441/fsepassi/moorish/IMG_1021.jpghttp://s1102.photobucket.com/user/fsepa ... 2.jpg.html
All the pieces bear the pattern number 3740, however only one, the sugar bowl, is marked with the the 'M' mark.
My on-line search indicates an 1873 circa date of production. Could the lack of the 'M' mark be due to the fact that the company was going through changes of directors in that year?
Also, I would be grateful for your comments on the 'A' mark which appears on all five pieces.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
