    I found this little vase in our local market last week. It is a Wedgwood Jasperware vase measuring 10 cm tall. The backstamp just says WEDGWOOD, with no England mark so it is pre 1891. I am not sure what is going on in the design, one person seems to be going through a mirror!

      Between 1860 and 1906, Wedgwood also used impressed letter marks to date their pieces. I don't see a letter date on yours.

      Here's one from 1840, with the letter "C" visible.

      There's a couple of indentations under the Wedgwood, but they don't look like letters. Maybe a potters mark.

      Here's another page for comparison of the marks on your vase:

      It's certainly is a classical scene, but one looks like a Greek or Roman soldier?

      My Wedgwood collector friend from Australia has told me the scene is "Apollo coming between Diomedes & Aeneas, thus allowing Aeneas to escape into the City of Troy"!

      He also came up with a date. In his words - "There is no 'Made in England' so that puts it
      before 1891 when the American McKinley Tariff Act required country of
      manufacture to be shown. There are no date letters which puts it before 1860
      when the lettering system started. The two little marks are called
      "moustache marks'. These were used between 1800 and 1820. Also the dark blue
      dip over white suggest pre-1820. So it looks as your vase is around 200
      years old"
