Dating carlton ware marks

It is only fitting that the first category is Wiltshaw & Robinson where the Carlton Ware story began.This Category covers Blush Ware, Flow Blue and the lustre patterns first produced under the W&R brand. The Introduction is the first of the five Blush Ware pages; following are four pages where the patterns are laid out in alphabetical order.Its’ world wide popularity is matched only by its incredible range.From novelties and crested ware, to salad ware and the embossed patterns like Foxglove, Buttercup, Oak and Hydrangea and then on to the hand painted and lustre patterns like the Chinoiserie School of patterns and Tutankhamen, Crested Bird, Spiders Web and New Stork.This is the ~ four digit number that follows the pattern name in the title.

After WWII production of the lustre patterns began again in earnest.

A new series of marks was produced circa 1951, these are the Hand Painted and the Royale marks which where in use until 1961.

The most common is the Rouge Royale, then the Bleu Royale, the Vert Royale and the rarest is the Noire Royale Mark.

Every item pictured has the pattern number written below it.
