A Mess Bowl produced by Mintons of England and used in the Royal Navy's just implemented General or Centralized Mess aboard ship (post "berthing" mess period) for British sailors or ratings ca 1907 as the bowl only has the British Royal Navy's Fouled Anchor as an insignia vs. a designated Mess No. This simple fouled anchor insiginia was inaugurated on/about 1905 and discontinued and stopped being issued by the Royal Navy in 1926.
Additionally, Minton the manufacturer of this piece used the shown backstamp between 1873 to 1912 which greatly helps to date this bowl. This marine salvaged Mess Bowl though intact has significant crazing and marine staining from being immersed in salt water for a 100 years or more.

A post-1907 British Navy Mess Bowl produced by Minton (a famous porcelain and china producer for over 200 years) and used in the General or Centralized Mess aboard ship (post "berthing" mess period) for British sailors or ratings as it only has the British Royal Navy's Fouled Anchor as an insignia vs. a designated Mess No.

This soup bowl is part of a matching dinnerware set and is a companion to a deep mess bowl sporting the same design, and ironically enough was also a marine salvage.

From the Salvager: A RARE MARINE SALVAGED POST 1907 ROYAL NAVY MESS PLATE (PLEASE STUDY PHOTOS). SALVAGED FROM A WRECK IN THE ENGLISH CHANNEL. THE FOULED ANCHOR MARK ON THE RIM WAS INTRODUCED FOR MESS PLATES IN 1907 AND DISCONTINUED IN 1926. PRODUCED BY MINTONS, THE MINTON STANDARD PRINT MARK IS FOR 1873-1912 WHICH MAKES MANUFACTURE DATE BETWEEN 1907 - 1912. USED IN THE GENERAL OR CENTRALISED MESS ABOARD SHIP FOR RATINGS.

BACKSTAMPED WITH THE ADMIRALTY INSPECTION AND APPROVAL STAMP CONSISTING OF A CAPITAL 'A' ABOVE THE ANCHOR WITH INSPECTION MARK 'O' BELOW THE ANCHOR. HAS AN IMPRESSED NUMERAL MARKS ON THE BASE BUT IT IS DIFFICULT TO MAKE OUT, POSSIBLY "30".

SUPRISING GOOD CONDITION CONSIDERING IT LAY ON THE OCEON FLOOR FOR MANY YEARS. HAS SALT WATER, MUD AND MARINE STAINING. NO CHIPS APART FROM ONE TINY ONE ON THE SINGLE BLUE LINE. EXTENSIVE AGE RELATED CRAZING. BACKSTAMPS VERY CLEAR.
