Crown marks, typically found on the bottom of fine china items, are clues that help you determine the age and the manufacturer of each piece, as well as its country of origin. Compare the crown shape and any words that go along with it to images on china resource websites to figure out exactly what you have. Crowns have been used as logos or "backstamps" on the bottom of porcelain and fine bone china since the s. Some companies are still using crown themes in their stamps, so narrowing down exactly what type of china you have may take a good amount of research. In some cases, one company may have more than variations of its crown logo, as is the case with china marked "Royal Albert" or "Royal Albert Crown China," explains Collectors Weekly. Once you find a word, letters or additional symbols to go along with the crown, you can narrow down the company that manufactured the piece, and potentially the era in which it was made.
