Research Facts
This impressed mark remains the usual mark until the adoption of the sans serif version in 1929. From 1907 on in the third series the first letter for the month is replaced by a 3 and with the fourth series commencing with A in 1924 with the figure 4. There is an area of confusion in wares in the first two series. For example TOT could mean a piece produced in either June 1865 or June of 1891. Commencing in 1929 the year mark is replaced by the last two digits of the year, 30 standing for 1930. The 2013 auction catalogue listing for this item indicates it as 'an early 20th century Wedgwood 'Ferrara' pattern blue and white transfer decorated chamber pot.
