Royal Doulton Tunis Canute Chesse Dish & Cover 

 Royal Doulton Tunis Canute Chesse Dish; D.3528; production window 1912 to 1928

 Royal Doulton Moorish Gateway or Tunis Series

 
Royal Doulton  Special Tunis Maker's Mark
 
Tunis has its own special back stamp. . In Moorish Gateway the characters sit in front of door way, with a window high in the wall. The brick wall and a cactus growing against the wall are shown in relief. Seen through the gate is the sky line of a Middle Eastern draw in brilliant yellow sunshine. It is as if the characters have been moved from the open desert of Tunis to sit against the wall surrounding the town in Moorish Gateway. This series was withdrawn from production in the early 1940’s.

I have no idea, are you sure has been not put on after manufacture in ink (over glaze) it could be a name. Sorry that I cannot be of any more help. Quoting Corne Pretorius:
Good day
I have a Royal Doulton bowl with a picture of birds. The marking on the back got the word "EMPLE" underneath the marking. Can anyone tell me what this mean, for I do not find any examples of this?

Thank you

There is a small market for them, but I have always found them pretty tough to sell. Would not be thinking of taking a holiday on the proceeds if I where you. Try them on eBay, you never know how lucky you will be.Quoting Rosemary Brown:
looking at your file of series Royal Doulton..have Dr Johnson at Temple Bar historical England ...no historical England series listed...are they collectible? curious

Yes I would be interested in your items, but only if they have no damage and there is no wear. Crazing I can live with as long as it is not stained. I would need to see photos and know where you are. Once I have seen photos I prefer to discuss how the transaction will take place over a phone call. So please email the pictures to me with your phone number on nicholnack@optu snet.com.au . I you live in North America or Britain I can still buy from you, but I would have to take the cost of postage into consideration. Sorry, but if you live in Outer Mongolia we are more than likely not going to be able to do business. Quoting Pauline Howe:
I have 4 cake plates of pattern 24, 1 cake plate of pattern 26 and 1 cake plate of pattern of 2 men sat near gateway talking as in the milk jug pattern - also one Sandwich plate with pattern of 21. Would anyone be interested in buying them ? Thank you.

Hi,

I have the pic for Number 25. The instrument the woman is playing is a lyre. I have a set of six cake plates in near-mint condition.
