MARKS AND DATES




A simple guide to understanding the basics of the marks and dates on the underside of pottery.

REGISTERED MARKS


1842 to 1883

Pottery Registration Marks

Shown above are the two patterns of Design Registration Marks which were used between 1842 and 1883.
The left hand diamond was used 1842-1867 and the right hand 1868-1883.


Registration for Pottery

Registration mark.
Unfortunately it is often difficult to know if the mark is 1842 - 1867 or 1868 - 1883.
Because of the glaze the marks at the corners of the diamond are often difficult to decipher.

REGISTERED NUMBERS


from 1884

Registered numbers are a consecutive numbering system which started in 1884 of designs which were registered by companies.
The Registered Number, usually written as Rd on the piece of pottery, gives the date when that design was registered to prevent copying, but it could have been made at any time later than that date.
Details of the registrations for 1 to 548919 are held at the Public Record Office, Ruskin Avenue, Kew, Surrey.
Telephone (0181) 8763444.
The numbers 54820 onwards are in the process of being moved there from the Design Registry, Room 1124A, State House, High Holburn, London, WC2A 1AY.

Have you ever come up with a good idea while working with your handmade pottery and thought that you would like to share it with others? You have? Well, why not send it to us and we will add it to the tips page for all to see.

Handmade pottery can be a very gratifying hobby that produces fun and satisfying results. For many people it's an enjoyable release that is created by working an inanimate mound of clay into a beautiful work of art that you made through your artistic abilities.

The best way of starting out is to take a few lessons from Youtube. You will probably waste quite a bit in materials when you first get started. Figuring out how to truly make handmade pottery correctly and shape into what you want it to be can be quite an ordeal. The different tools that a normal shop will have can be fun to try. You will soon see which ones you like to use the most and then when you are ready you will know which ones to buy.

With the help of the internet, you can now purchase most if not all of your ceramic and pottery tools and supplies online. We are located far from any well supplied dealers and yet working with reliable ceramic and pottery suppliers online has allowed us to recieve most of our orders within a timely manner.

When you get all set up, just enjoy the hobby and have fun at it. Some people get pretty serious and start selling their creations at craft fairs and small stores, but others just like to create items for themselves, relatives, and friends. Whichever kind of handmade pottery you desire to endeavor, enjoy the hobby and have fun doing it.
