I picked up this sweet tea cup and saucer from my favourite market stall last week. It is in the Broseley pattern and made in England, but was made around the time that English potters were trying to copy the Chinese porcelain so put a pretend seal on the base! I have not identified this mark, but have found out that potteries such Miles Mason and Copeland used the square seal mark. I have a few of this pattern cup and saucers, but this is the only one with a back stamp. I think it probably dating to 1825-35, looking at the shape of the cup and handle. (Bit of a guess!).
