Base Markings    THIS SECTION STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION

These pages have information on the base markings particularly company backstamps and tube-liners ID marks; but there can be several other marks applied by the tube-liners, paintresses, or within the pottery body itself.

 

Since all these markings on the base, including the decorative glaze are applied by hand, (no machine work here except the shape impression number), they form a "fingerprint" for each Charlotte Rhead pot. Each unique combination and arrangement of marks means each charger, vase, jug and bowl can be efficiently catalogued without the risk of duplicating an entry. This information is used in conjunction with pattern numbers and date information in an attempt to recreate the production history of Charlotte Rheads work at Crown Ducal.
