The urn is stamped with the maker's name on the base, along with the number 2253, and can also be seen on the inside of the base of the stand along with the number 2058. Both are shown in the tenth image below. Please note one of the handles has been restored and there is a restored chip to the rim. English, c.1880.

Dresser supplied many designs for the pottery. Henry Tooth ran the pottery until 1882, when he left to set up Bretby Art Pottery with William Ault he was succeeded at Linthorpe by Richard Patey.
