    Not sure if this helps but the three dimples in the cup remind me of 'Toogoods patent' which was used from the early 20th century on. I believe this was for stacking and packaging with string for export etc. I collect 19th - 20th century transfer printed brewery ceramics and find sometimes the underglaze transfer stands proud when looking from an angle. I think this is something to do with the firing. Also period pottery always feels heavy compared to more modern types.
    Good luck in your quest to return the items but after 7-8 months since purchase you may struggle.

    Rgd's Mark.

    Here are a few examples of transfer printing on period items... The first is a genuine under-glaze transfer on my luft saucer...

    Next up is a early 20th century ointment pot with a under-glaze transfer that has slightly come through the glaze when fired...

    Here we have a over-glaze early 20th century ointment pot. The transfer would eventually wear off if rubbed over a long period of time or submitted to long periods of burial in damp conditions.

    Finally here is a repro 1980's ceramic with a over-glaze transfer. The pottery is as light as a feather and the original never had a over-glaze transfer.

    Many thanks for the information Mark, thanks for taking the time

    I did not realise that transfers were used to apply the factory marks


    Why do they use transfer printing and not stamp the marks directly to the china ?

    Cheers
