    Antique Ironstone (Stoke on Trent/Staffordshire) "Imari" Tureen with Victorian Royal Crest Mark

    I recently found this sauce tureen and am thoroughly stumped regarding maker, age or pattern. Bears many of the elements found in Mason's "imari" including palette, shape and gilt embellishments, but cannot match the maker's mark or pattern details. Any help I.D.ing this piece is DEEPLY appreciated!! THANKS IN ADVANCE !!!

      Good mystery, and I admire very old English pottery. Early version tureen of the 19th century Royal Staffordshire Pottery with the producer Wilkinson works.

      A link to the Wilkinson company , and a conclusion on my part after finding this mark in my illustrated pottery marks book under A. J. Wilkinson without the LTD. on the mark, that it dates before 1891 and after 1860, because Japan did not export imari dinnerware till after that, and there is no country or company name which was required after 1891. Hope this helps, piece with this mark are very rare.

      "there is no country or company name which was required after 1891", my error here, I meant BEFORE 1891.

      There are many Staffordshire potteries, and even US makers who used a lion and unicorn coat of arms, but most had their initials or name within the banner somewhere.

      The words on the banner Dieu Et Mon Druit are from the Royal coat of Arms of England

      Thank you @truthordare !! I looked at the Wilkinson marks and I didn't see one that matches, but it is probably because you know something I don't. I can't tell you how much it means, I've been all over the potteries, ironstone and antiques sites, and I can't find the mark. I am so sorry it took me this long to find your response. Do you really think you have found the same mark? I'm very confused. I truly appreciate your expertise in this matter!!!

      Mae76, you are welcome, I tried to find another Wilkinson Imari piece from the 19th. There is much more antique ware from the producer Royal Straffordshire Pottery on hand. Tks.
