Hi all
Merry Christmas and Happy holidays!
I found this beauty at a flea market yesterday. The bottom identifies it as Adams Tunstall but I am intrigued by the coat of arms. Can anyone identify the coat of arms and possibly date this for me? I am really loving it. It is done in the Wedgewood style but the color is awesome!

Mystery Solved

    AR8Jason, thank you so much. Yes the bottom says Tunstall, England, letteer S, number 36, and Adams Est 1657. Possibly another mark that is sunk into the pottery too deep to read.

    If there is the word England you can say after 1891. It sounds as if it is the earlier Adams Tunstall mark. Pre 1890. Oswestry is only 35 miles away from the Staffordshire Potteries.

    Thanks vetraio50! I went to the potteries site and found the mark on the bottom of the creamer, said to have been used from 1897 into the 20th century. thank you so much for your help.

    I don't think you know how welcome your communication is. I live in a very isolate situation and always look forward to your kind words and knowledge.
