Rosebud Teacup

I am happy to be participating Martha’s and Terri’s “Tea Cup Tuesday” No. 36!

This is my vintage “Rosebud - Green” teacup produced in England between 1951 to 1952.


I know this exact time frame by looking at the mark on the bottom of the teacup.


The round back-stamp shows Royal Winton, Grimwades, Made in England and the letter “A”.


How the letter “A” is displayed is the clue letting me know when this teacup was produced in England.


In 1941 all potteries were required to be marked with the grade of it’s china. 
It is at that time Royal Winton began adding the letter “A” to it’s pottery.


Royal Winton did not include this letter “A” in it’s script back-stamp between 1941 to 1951.


In 1951 Royal Winton created their new script back-stamp which included the letter “A”.


This new back-stamp continued until 1952.   My teacup shows the letter “A” as part of the script back-stamp.


Sometime in 1952 the producers of pottery were no longer required to display the grade.


I would like to say “Thank You” to Martha and Terri for letting me participate in their “Tea Cup Tuesday”.

Hello! Lovely teacup and thoroughly enjoyed the historic background. I am fascinated by maker's marks. There are pieces of old pottery I find in our yard and occasionally I find maker's marks.
I posted about the shards before - but didn't think about the timing and history of the make.
So appreciate you stopping by so that I could find you!
Hope you have a very Delightsome day,
