    Staffordshire Knot marks
    The the three loop knot has long been used as a symbol of Staffordshire and many Stoke-on-Trent potters used it as part of their marks.
    Godden in his revision of Jewitt's 'Ceramic Art of Great Britain 1800-1900' comments: "Many nineteenth-century printed marks are based on stock designs - variations of the royal arms, a garter-shaped mark or the Staffordshire knot (both the garter and knot with and without a crown). The knot can occur from about 1845. It was much used in the 1870's and 1880's and continues, in some instances, to the present day. These marks might be found with the initials or names of the relevant manufacturers."

    Location and period of operation:

    Kensington Pottery Ltd
    Earthenware manufacturer at the Kensington Works, Hanley (c.1922-37) and Top Bridge Works, Longport, Burslem (c.1937 - Dec 1961)
    Hanley c.1922 - c.1937
    Longport 1937- Dec 1961

    Your particular mark dates from 1922-37.

    According to the pottery marks website which I have a membership to, the dates for the mark are 1922-37, but I agree, it looks more atomic era. They're not always accurate!
