I have now got a page on my web site for the IOW 'British Museum' design that went into production, with one picture of a trial for the British Museum. As you will see they are very different. So it is not beyond possibility that your PW is an IOW trial.

Thank you Anton - I feel it is highly likely that this is one of those trial pieces since it post-dates the normally accepted dates for the BM.  Perhaps they were considering a subsequent order that was not pursued - guess we will never know for sure.
