Information is very patchy.
Established in 1758, then bankrupted in 1820.
Goddens says Leeds pottery impressed is c1775-1800+

Various firms then worked the site until 1878.

I don't think it's an original, or a much later reproduction (1983+), but rather a reproduction somewhere in the 1920's perhaps.

I got this from wikipedia... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leeds_Pottery

wikipedia wrote:Leeds Pottery has had a long and complex business history. It was created in Hunslet by John Green and Joshua Green, unrelated, around 1756, joined by Richard Humble in 1775 to become Humble, Green, and Co. Circa 1783 a businessman named William Hartley joined the firm, and the firm was renamed Hartley Greens & Co.[13] The company's flint mill at Thorpe Arch was in 1814 replaced by a converted windmill on their Leeds premises.

In the early 19th century, however, the company went into a prolonged decline and from 1821 was sold repeatedly, becoming in turn Wainwright & Co., Stephen & James Chappell, Warburton & Britton, and finally Richard Britton & Sons, until it finally closed in 1881. Its buildings were then demolished. However, in 1888 production was restarted by James Wraith Senior, who used the old designs and marked his products Leeds Pottery. This business wound down in 1957. Leeds City Council restarted the brand in 1983, making reproduction pieces, but soon had to sell the business. Production was moved to Stoke-on-Trent, and in 1992 after acquisition by John Croft it was renamed Hartley Greens & Co. In 2011 it was acquired by Denby Pottery, and production moved to Middleport pottery, north of Stoke-on-Trent.[14]

Well, this is odd, i came by two more items of Leeds pottery today from two different locations. Perhaps it is newer production then.

This one shows a different mark...

This one has same mark as OP, note that the tureen and spoon isn't marked, just the under plates. I can now also make out what it says "Made in England"

Hartley Greens Leeds Pottery now have a dead Facebook page, production ceased near 16th of December 2014. I don't know which marks they used though.

Their pottery was often seen in Downton Abbey TV show...
