Mark Henry Blanchard served his apprenticeship with the Coade Company and around 1839 established his own manufactory in London. It is believed that in 1883 he moved his workshops to Bishops Waltham, to be nearer to the source of clay that he used. By the middle of the Century he had emerged as the leading manufacturer of terracotta in Britain, he was awarded prizes for his exhibit at the Great Exhibition of 1851. Amongst the many properties where his produce can be seen is the South Kensington Museum (now the Natural History Museum).
Normally the manufacturers stamp used by Blanchard stamp is in a typeface form, rather than this rarer script form
