Milton is the design name. We have had a lot of these on the forum.
1930s staffordshire, cold-painted, almost never marked
Check out Brentleigh ware, Embossa Ware etc.

As DD says it is 1930s. These cold painted wares made in Staffordshire were inexpensive to produce and were made when Art Deco had become popular in this country to sell to the less well off.

Therefore the best guess that you are going to get for this and wares like it is that they were produced mostly between 1934 and 1936. Production would have continued in lower quantities until 1939.

The yellow mark is a quality control mark put on by the painter, so that when the quality of the work was checked in the factory any blame for poor work could be directed at the correct worker.

Looking at the font used for 'Milton' and the amount of paint flaking I'd suggest Ellgreave.

Could, or should, the colour be restored?
