Earliest known backstamp on Cornish Ware (c. 1925)

This backstamp has been recorded on at least 2 blue banded cornish ware dreadnought jugs and the consensus opinion is that it predates the general accepted start of manufacture for Cornish Kitchen Ware as we know it - the mark was used by TG Green from the early 1900ís and from the style of the dreadnought jugs it has been seen on we would estimate a date of c. 1925 or there abouts.
