D5:
1929-30. Print. Black, orange and green. 19.5x23mm
Susie Cooper left Gray's Pottery in October 1929 in order to start her own business. This backstamp was probably the practical use of a residual stock of D1 marks, finally exhausted in the middle of 1930 when the pattern numbers had reached 8734. Mark D6 (1929-30) omits the words 'HAND-PAINTED'.
