ancient Staffordshire tyg. Rd. No. 641312. The model is only issued

matching arms: The
League of Goss Collectors
This model was registered in 1914 and was first listed and illustrated
(without a coat of arms) in the 8th edition of The Goss Record. It was the
third League model to be issued, and according to the inscription it bears,
it was intended only to be available to collectors who had been members of
the League for 4 years. However, the Goss Record
states that this system was proving to be unmanageable and that the latest
model was instead being issued to new recruits on joining and earlier models
in the series could be obtained at the same time from the League
When the model was first issued (around 1914) it was only available
bearing the arms of The League of Goss Collectors. However, when the
League became the International League the model also became available bearing
the new arms of The International League of Goss Collectors. It is not
known bearing any other arms.
The model has 4 handles, equally spaced.
