<font color='#333399'>Hi Silmerillion

Welcome to the UK's number one independent dive forum.
Only crest I can help you with is the East India Company
they did have their own china as far as I know.
Cheers
Bob.

Almost all of the old passenger steam packet lines had their own crockery. Suggest a web search for history of them should turn upa few. If you can email piccies I'll have a hunt on my bookshelves.

A search on Google for "company crests on porcelain" could yield results.  

I had to do the same for makers marks and year of manufacture marks  when I inherited some china.

Just a thought.
