I am in Elgin, Texas,USA. I have come into possession of a large (2 gallon/6 liter?) Cider barrel made of some sort of stoneware. It is marked "Taunton Cider Co. LTD.

       Norton Fitzwarren
          Somerset
       Design Regn.No. 9009"

It is made to look like a stave barrel 12-3/4 inches (32-1/2 cm) high with a screw top and spigot.

Can anyone give me an idea of it's age?


This website would indicate 1884 http://www.oldcopper.org/registered_designs.htm#Design%20Registration%20Numbers However I'm no expert and I suggest you follow up on the links and info on that website and this http://www.thepotteries.org/mark/reg.htm
