I have a set of plates marked on the back with a unicorn

Customer Question

Hi i have a set of plates marked on the back with a unicorn and the words Wedgwood & co ld in a straight line under the unicorn, then Made in England under that. These marks are a blue colored stamp. In another place on the back of each plate the word Ivory 1034 or possibly 1934 is stamped into the plates. I am wanting to date the plates if possible

i have uploaded several images of both the dinner and smaller sized plates, both front and back. The larger plates have a painted mark that is different on each plate, i think it may be initials?

Hi, Thank you for your patience. Your English china set was made in the 1930's by Wedgwood & Co Ltd; this is not the same company as the well-known Wedgwood firm established by Josiah Wedgwood, but instead Wedgwood & Co Ltd was a different company founded by a cousin, Enoch Wedgwood. Ivory is the name of the glaze and 1934 is the name of pattern shape. The average value is $5 - $7 per piece in the set. ~Nora
