Worcester in the C18th and early C19th can be divided into the Dr Wall period 1752-1776, the Davis period 1776-1783 and the Flight and various Barr's periods 1783-1840. The factory used a large range of marks, the most common being the crescent marks, both open and hatched, the fret mark and the script and printed W. Some Worcester under glaze blue painted patterns have their own unique mark. Soapstone soft paste porcelain proved to be the best of the soft paste recipes and Worcester produced a fine range of porcelain wares including printed wares ,both under and over glaze, scale decoration in blue, red, yellow and pink and of course under glaze blue painting.which did not craze and which could survive the addition of boiling water to tea pots.This Dr. Wall Period soft paste porcelain sextagonal fluted dish, transfer printed under glaze with the "Fence" Pattern, is a teapot stand and is wellmarked by a hatched crescent.
