Google knows everything. The company is a very old type manufacturer. "The now defunct, but still famous name of Stephenson, Blake (SB) was created when James Blake and John Stephenson signed a partnership agreement on 25 September 1830 to last until 1840. The agreement was renewed, and the name persisted, absorbing many other type foundries in the intervening years. The foundry had always been based around Upper Allen Street in Sheffield"

Grace's Guide also has a lot of its history. A good find, that!

Thanks Temp. It seems that it might be older than I thought. And to think it might now be stuck on a canvas and covered in paint...

Someone in South Africa sent me a lot of pictures of what he thought were Lowestoft china. They weren't, though they were sold to his grandmother as such, in the early 20th century. Bit late to complain...
