Base Mark for Farmers Arms Loving Cup

Post by Peter Harrison on August 26th 2018, 5:35 pm

Can anybody identify the base mark on this Victorian Farmers Arms/God Speed the Plough Loving Cup please?
I suspect it may be purely decorative but I don't know. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

Lovely cup.
Iíve tidied up the thread. The cup photo just seems to be a thumbnail photo rather than a full sized one . Does it say Mary Ann Lawton 1855?

I found this but others will know far more than me about this style of pottery

There are also ironstone mugs produced by Burleigh Pottery, Staffordshire, (producing since 1851 and best known for producing blue and white china, eg with the well known 'calico chintz' pattern) titled 'God Speed the Plough' and 'Industry Produceth Wealth' with the same 'Farmers Arms' poem.

Leeds pottery apparently also produced 'Farmers Arms' crockery. Sunderland also produced pearlware (pink lustre and black transfer printed) Farmers Arms plaques and mugs etc - some with the 'Sailors Farewell' on the reverse, as did other makers.

Yes it is, anything to see on the back?

A most odd base mark, can't see it it any books I have.
Not sure it is a company logo though.
