A typical Royal Arms mark from the Hicks & Meigh period. The original "66" has been cut out of the backstamp before being applied. The top of the curve of the first "6" can be seen between the "1" and the "5" of the painted pattern number.

The 4-line impressed mark reads "ASHWORTH'S / REAL / IRONSTONE / CHINA".
If the impressed "6 / 03" is to be read as a date code for June 1903, then the date at whjch the Goddards began to use the Mason's backstamp instead of the Ashworth's on all wares needs to be moved from the 1890s to the early years of the 20th century.
