Doulton/Burslem Mark info:
The coronet was probably added to the earlier mark c. 1886 to mark the appointment of Henry Doulton as 'Potter to H.R.H. The Prince of Wales' (later King Edward VI 1), ENGLAND was added underneath after 1891. This mark continued in use until 1902. It appears to have been used instead of B.3 especially on bone china products and on the more expensive earthen wares. A simplified version showing only the coronet on a flat base and the word DOULTON was also used. Ref: "The Doulton Burslem Wares" by Desmond Eyles/China Finders
