Change in the Royal Coat of Arms in 1837
The arms have remained unchanged since 1837 when Queen Victoria came to the throne. Therefore it is possible to date pre and post 1837 pottery by these differences.
Victoria and all
subsequent monarchs- In 1837, the
Hanoverian escutcheon and crown were removed because Queen Victoria, as
a woman, was unable to succeed to the throne of Hanover under Hanoverian
law. The arms have remained unchanged since then.
