Description

John Edwards was provileged to use the three-plumed feather insignia of the Prince of Whales in his trademark, evidence of a visit to the pottery by that emminent gentleman, the future Edward VII.  Dare we assume that Mr. Edwards honored that visit by naming his feather embossed body style "Peerless" in honor of the Prince?

Note:  The impressed mark of this potter-named body style does not contain the word "Shape."

Registered in 1887.
