Thanks for that clarification Paul, I always wondered why the Wedgwood England mark was so rough...now I know.
I well remember an eBay listing where the seller had described it as Maker Unknown but with WEDGWIXXI) ENGLAND on the base! I wrote and explained that it said Wedgwood, but they would not believe me until I sent a picture of the type of 'stencil writing' on the side of a Tea Chest, then they wrote back and thanked me profusely....then listed it as WEDGEWOOD!!!
Why do they put an 'E' in the middle for heavens sake??
