Thanks for the information. I would date the piece older than that, since it has five spur marks. Which as a general rule, the more the spur marks, the older. Since it was not until mid 19th century when the Kilns conditions had improved in technology and did not need spurs in the sagger.

Here is some additional information on the spur marks from the Gotheborg website. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
