Each with a turned stem terminated by a circular ogeed drip-pan, on a triform stepped base with paw and ball feet, three with a crowned R mark to the base.

According to Nigel Weekes the crowned R is a French mark associated with the same period as the crowned C (1745-49). It might be found on objects made earlier as they were being presented for sale at that period.
