Some of the Staffordshire potters would use these stamps as a way of giving their wares a sense of history and value. Dale Pottery works is one such firm that practiced this. They would use the 1790 date mark on many pieces as it was the date that the pottery was first built by Joseph Stubbs.
HOUSE / MOVE UPDATE
Since I'm not going to be doing quite as many posts with lots of photos over the next few weeks due to our multiple move (business and home) and other things going on in our lives right now, I will try to post some little informative pieces here and there. I hope you'll enjoy them, learn something from them and come back for more! ;-) I'll be back as soon as I can with some tablescapes, and pics of the progression of the new house.
Don't forget the $50 giveaway to my English Transferware store over at Savvy Southern Style.
