What a Find!

Minton Pottery Factory of the Staffordshire region of England

Though I cannot guarantee, I am speculating this could very possibly stand for the famed financier J.P Morgan (J.P. Morgan Chase). Or, his nephew, James Pierpont Morgan, the founder of Yale University and who wrote "Jingle Bells".
