The pottery’s stamp is often combined with other markings that served to define the item more fully, particularly for stocktaking purposes. The majority of these were produced in the mould and are usually found near the Medalta name, often right below it. Others are found in various coloured oxides, but black or white are by far the most common ones. These additional markings can be categorized as those identifying a particular style by number or by name, those indicating the colour or decoration and those defining the size of the product. As is always the case, there are some other markings that served a special purpose, some of which still need to be explained.
