      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
