Unfortunately not all pieces are marked with a cipher.
The patterns were listed in the pattern books chronologically, so it is possible to give a date range, especially where the date the pattern was first produced is known from other records - e.g. It is also hoped to give an approximate date when the production of a pattern ended in due course from a study of images available on internet auction sites.
Royal Crown Derby® provided a replacement service during most of the period, so earlier patterns were reproduced so as to complete a set where a piece had been broken, but with an up-to-date factory mark.

As much of the output up to, during and in the first seven years after the war was produced for export, only seconds quality or undecorated surrey shape ware was available to purchase in the UK. Unfortunately a piece could have been potted and then stored away for years before actually being decorated.
This denotes "Seconds" quality and is very often "overlooked" by internet sellers. They were used somewhat sporadically during the period under question, and then on flat ware but not on hollow ware (i.e.cups, vases etc.).
