I have two Moorcroft Pansy bowls that I am having troubles dating. One has a signature, a Moorcroft stamp and a Burslem stamp and what looks like a M71O below Moorcroft. I believe it should be pre 1916 as there is no England stamp but I’m not sure how much earlier and whether it matters that there is a light blue dot on the bottom. The glaze has bubbles and an extra slip of clay inside on the pansy. I have smaller pansy bowl with lovely glaze a Burslem stamp but no signature and no M710 code. I’m not sure whether my smaller bowl would be earlier than the signed piece or later but still pre 1916 as there is no England stamp on the smaller bowl either. Any insight would be appreciated.
