    I believe this is an English Imari style biscuit jar dating from around the 1880s. I give the dating based on looking up the registration numbers. I inherited this from my mother. I believe she bought this on a trip to England years ago. She was quite knowledge about antiques and loved collecting glass and porcelain. I don't know the maker's mark for the piece. Any information about this would be so appreciated. It is about 5" tall.
    Thanks for stopping by.

      The registration mark will give you a date. You can look it up here:
      It will be under the diamond section under the heading:
      REGISTERED NUMBERS - from 1884

      I think the WC mark is that Of Wileman & Co., Fenton & Longton, Staffordshire, England (circa 1892-1925). They were famous for Foley China later.

      Keramikos and vetrio50, Thanks so much for the research and information on this pattern. I did see that the year was 1887, but didn't know about the company, shape or pattern.
      And to
      vetraio50 and Keramikos,
      Thanks for the loves and/or comments. Maureen

      Here is a link to a great resource for all Staffordshire potteries. They have a later example of your mark when it merged with Foley. If you go to their HOME page there is a registration mark section too
