Muffineer


#1

Hi guys,
Some help please on this.
A Geo III muffineer by John Waters (I guess), but the shape of the date letter is somewhat confusing to me. 1771?
I’m sure you’ll get it in an instant.
Hope you can help
Regards
John

The date letter is U for 1775. Grimwade gives the maker as James Waters, smallworker, entered 24 May 1769.

a ‘U’ - Of course!
silly me … I meant to say James Waters - for some reason the American kitch film director came to mind - John Waters.
Thanks again
John
