In 1949 the various asterisk, square, diamond and circle shapes changed to letters and then quickly back to letters and dot sequences.These continued until 1963 but their use was rather inconsistent and a great many pieces produced at this time are un-dated.The Evesham and Royal Garden patterns being just two examples.Prior to this date named sets were uncommon, although there were some the majority of early named patterns were given the name in more recent times.The presence of the crescent mark dates these items to the Dr Wall period and they are all very similar in shape, size and decoration to those made in the same period by Caughley.See our early worcester for sale section for examples of sparrow beak jugs, Bute cups and Dr Wall period pieces.

You may have noticed that almost all sellers on Ebay list china items as collectable, vintage, antique, old, very old etc. Here is a little smattering of facts that may help you correctly date the china you have inherited, or kept in the family through the years.
These records detail tableware type, the decoration, and the painter, but the simpler apprentice sets and transfer printed sets appear to have no clear record of what each set looks like.
Hi there, I operate TEA_PAST_TIMES on EBAY and am coming up on my 6th year of selling vintage and antique china.
It being easier and cheaper to put an extra dot on existing copper plates than make new ones.
