Doulton and Co Ltd
Manufacturers of stonewares and earthenwares at Lambeth in London - circa 1854-1956
And also at Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent (where porcelains were also made) - circa 1882 to present day

The Backstamp

Introduced in the latter part of 1901 to mark the grant of the Royal Warrant by King Edward VII together with the specific right to use the word 'royal' to designate Doulton products
This mark was in general use at Burslem between 1902 and 1922
On smaller wares, only the bottom half of this mark (ie omitting the lion and crown) is found
Differing from the mark above by the addition of the words "MADE IN ENGLAND" around the Doulton name, this mark was commonly in use after 1932
However, the exact date of introduction is not known
Many dated examples between 1928 and 1931 exist, and occasional examples dated between 1923 and 1927 have also been noted
This mark is still used on fine earthenware products such as Character Jugs

The Pattern Number - D5565

Pattern Numbers D5521 to D5612 - these patterns were introduced in 1935 (approx)
