It may be Wedgwood but it seems to be a misspelling of the Greek phrase 'Tranquillien Etruria' so it may simply be by an anonymous Staffordshire factory. The addition of England dates it to the turn of the 20thC

Looks like it's often spelt 'Tranquilline' and a quick look at Google shows an odd mix of things from what looks like mass produced through to hand thrown. All a bit odd.
