Never seen a flanged version like that, although the print looks slipped to me, could be someone has put the transfer on a plain potlid as an experiment, using a transfer.

I am probably wrong

That's what I meant to say that it has a flange:)

Not seen a flanged one and have dug lots of thirties Burgesses. Probably a relative rarity. :)

These are rarer than most people realize. It is thought these were used during the reign of George VI possibly up to the outbreak of World WarII. They always seem to be dug from late 30s tips and seem to survive well maybe because they have not been buried for so long. The glaze does not seem to craze like earlier glazes. The lid is always flat topped with the overhanging rim and fairly shallow straight sided flange. I have never seen any variations, but never say never.

I have seen and handled these "By appointment to the late King George V" flanged Burgess lids, harder to find than the straight sided version.
