R1:
1931-33. Print. All black. 14.5x20 and 21x29.5mm
Designer Jack Bond's mediaeval ship, the so-called Pharaoh's Boat, was originally intended for silver lustre ware, according to his correspondence. However, this printed version (rather than the stamped R2) can be found on a wide range of decorations. This is the only R backstamp to carry the words 'HAND PAINTED'.
