In the 1770s, there emerged a great popularity for the early British dinnerwares in
underglaze printed blue flowers.
As well, the public now desired matching sets.
With the new "transfer-printed" method (introduced by Worcester in 1756),
these wares could be produced is a less time-consuming and therefore more affordable manner.
Slowly Worcester's output began to be dominated by just a few patterns -
"Pinecone" being one of the two most requested.
Most Pinecone wares bear the underglaze crescent mark.
However, the script W mark was used on some Pinecone pieces between 1770 and 1775.
As well, the scalloped rim is more unusual than the lobed form.
