    The marks I think might be of interest are the incomplete blue 'Z' marks on both parts, and also the gold circle with gold dot in the middle....
    Any information would be greatly appreciated...
    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    If you can make out the letter at the top, under the Roman numeral IV, we might get somewhere.

    That's a British registry mark, so it's between 1842 and 1883. The Z is a deocrator's piece mark, as are the gold dots. Get a piece of paper and do a pencil rubbing of the diamond and the impressed lettering. Easier to read.

    Thanks for the posting tips guys.....sorry, new to the site....
    Regarding the rubbing...I did try this but it didn't help....
    Does anyone recognise any of the decorators marks or know if it's come from a reputable factory? Does it have any value in anyone's opinion or not?

    If it's an N, the design was registered to Ashworth.

    Get a bit of powdered cinnamon or instant coffee, try rubbing that in. The decorators marks don't matter on this sort of stuff, it's the factory.

    I think opaque porcelain was registered to Meigh.

    Wow...I'm really impressed!! So I looked up Ashworth brothers porcelain tureens and found this one...which makes me pretty sure that it's from the same factory! Great bit of digging there guys...I spent days scrolling through thousands of pictures of tureens and never saw one even close to mine....so well done and thanks very much! Not really bothered that it's not very valuable...its been educational! Screenshot_20210807-012748_Firefox.jpg
