From 1842 to 1883 an English registration mark showing the approximate date of manufacture was placed on four types of articles. Earthenware was one of them. The marks (A & B) in the margin are illustrative. Between 1868 and 1867 the letter at the top directly under the circle indicates the year of manufacture. The number at the right shows the day of the month. The letter at the left indicates the month of manufacture and the number at the bottom is a key to the manufacturer. The Roman numeral in the circle at top was used as follows: I for metal objects; II for wood; III for glass; and IV for earthenware. The approximate year of manufacture is indicated by the following letters:

X—1868 P—1851 Z—1860
H—1843 D—1852 R—1861
