Marked to right of handle "A T" in small, fat, somewhat crude letters, below a crown and over a device (fleur-de-lys?), all within a sheld shape that is rounded at top and bottom. Similar to that found on tankard 250.1.1981.
Also marked under base "A T" and same devices, but seemingly in an ellipse.
