The vast majority of the so-called Bell Works Ridgway products have the lozenge applied mark, a few have no mark as in this case, and fewer still are impressed marked "Ridgway". It has been suggested that the impressed marked ones are the oldest, the unmarked next oldest, and the lozenge marked the latest. I would agree in so far as the impressed marked pieces are older than the lozenge marked ones. There is no way of telling, however, whether the unmarked ones are the same age as the impressed marks ones, or more recent, as it was always possible for a few pieces to escape marking through negligence or accident.

The 8 inch covered filter jug is 190mm tall, 195mm lip to handle, and 137mm broad.
