This backstamp is actually the imprint of George Grainger and Company. If you are interested in consigning in future sales, please contact the specialist department.
There are variations of the major types that we will call sub-types.
The characteristics of a coddler that are used to determine the type of coddler are the backstamp and the screw threads.
In many cases, we may refer to a backstamp style by the type of coddler upon which it was seen.
Each unique subtype will be designated by an Arabic numeral followed by English alphabet letter. Note: The designation of "type" is entirely ours ...
RW nor any other authority on porcelain or pottery will have the faintest idea what you are talking about if you say you have a Type 2A RW egg coddler.
