    This particular mark is circa 1890 early 1900s, with the use of the Royal Arms with the lion rampant. Even though it is called 'white', the ironstone had a faint blueish-grey cast to the product. It's in lovely shape, except for a hair crack at the top of the handle, which someone repaired quite well. The lid is 8 3/4" diameter, and the pot is 8 1/2" diameter (not taking into consideration the side handle), 6 1/2" high (base to top of lid handle).

    Meakin was a manufacturer of earthenware at the Eagle Pottery (1859-1970) and the Eastwood Works (1887-1958), Hanley, England. Brothers James and George Meakin took over the pottery manufacturing business of their father James Meakin in 1851, operating at Cannon St, Hanley. James Meakin junior died in 1885 and George Meakin in 1891, but the family business (incorporated as J. & G. Meakin Ltd in 1890) continued first under George Eliot Meakin (son of George Meakin), from 1891 to 1927 and then under Bernard Meakin (son of George’s brother James) from 1927 until his retirement in 1955.
