My mother had the complete set of these, all with different colored borders and fruits. The blue bordered one is the only one that I liked enough to keep....at least at the time. I gave the others away. :`-(
(As I've mentioned before, I made some choices that I regret when I was going through everything when cleaning out my old homeplace. Being overwhelmed is not easy and you tend not to make the wisest decisions.)
This mark was used beginning in 1913 but I believe these were more probably 1930's era. I haven't been able to pinpoint that for certain. While marked Old English, I cannot find this particular set listed anywhere reputable. The information I've found so far are provided by someone that has them for sale and that isn't necessarily reliable. If you know anything about the actual manufacture date, I'd love to know what it is!
UPDATE:
Thanks to scandinavian_pieces, I know the pattern name! :-)

    Hey, scandi! Things are good, thanks for asking. :-) Jim's on the mend, slowly but surely. Got to love the feeling when you get when you 'get one', don't you? Thanks for the help, good wishes and the love!

    Thanks for commenting,mikielikjessigns2. I'm glad it was a hit with her! Sorry it's taken so long to respond. Health issues have had most of our family out of commission for several months.
