We have this Moorcroft Hibiscus-pattern ginger jar and are trying to puzzle out how old it might be ~ or to put it another way, how not-new it is. It has the paper labels on the underside of the jar and the lid, but they unfortunately cover up any marks that might be underneath. The only hint is that the paper label, which identifies the form as #769, also states that they are "POTTERS TO THE LATE QUEEN MARY". From our research, similar offerings with that label are sometimes dated by sellers as the 1970's, but we have found others absent the paper label dated to just the last few years. We wondered if there was any more definitive dating possible. Anyone have a reference work that helps us?
