Backstamps & Makers' Marks

Antique Lily


























Quite possibly the oldest example of Meakin china on this site.  The plate is very heavy ironstone, green, blue and pink leaves and flowers around rim, two lilies on the centre panel.  Extremely rare human-faced lion with crown and unicorn backstamp, definitely predates 1890.  See Priory for another example of a human-faced lion backstamp.
