England, UK
James Dixon & Sons

But I don’t know what does A.R. and the marks in the last raws.

Thanks for your help.

I’m afraid that the remaining marks are not of any particular meaning. They might be inventory marks or pattern marks. The 1 1/2 might refer to the volume of the item. But I don’t believe you will ever discover anything more definite.
