Unusual Royal Worcester Trademark

Post by Admin on Fri Aug 19, 2011 9:43 pm

I just recieved an inquiry about a matched pair of Royal Worcester Grecian Water Carriers. They have several unusual features including a RW trademark that I have never seen before.

The nine dots indicate 1900 but I have never seen this model maked "Crown Ware" or have a CW number instead of the model number. One is marked C.W. 203 and the other is C.W. 204. They are not marked "Cricklite".

What do we have here????

The mark is odd as they used "Cricklite" on the bases before 1900. But looking around, I found another example of the same mark. This piece has the mark on the cover as well as the base. The date information in the description is strange. I'm not sure what they are trying to say about the two dates on the single piece. The web site is:

Not that this solves the problem, but it is another example.

Another place that might have information is at:

Look at the last page of the document.

Thanks for the link to the RW factory marks. Very helpful.

re: the Bowl with two date on a single piece, strangly, it does have two different Rd numbers. I can't quite make what they are, but they are different. One begins with a "7" one with a "6".

I thought I would include a photo of this unusual RW stand.

As you can see, it is only partially painted in an unusual "metalic blue".
