It is the old Greek Royal Navy. - Probably Officer's Mess.

Dear sirs ladies, WIKAPEDIA has an old shipping company that became in 1920's taken over by the Midland railway. The original company the Barrow Navigation Company, {BN}, this may make sense as it appears it was a minor player in th shipping coastal trade-But became part of a railway shipping comapnies operation. NO House motive, but the fouled anchor of the Navy [MN RN}. One vessel the Belfast City In WW! was in service as a support vessel in the Royal Navy.

Interesting point…on a platter I have with similar furled anchor
but with Queens crown above and surrounded by banner ‘Barrow
Steamship Company’..
There was much earlier Barrow Navigation co.,in Ireland but
not shipowners…

I decided to look further and found this website:
and it appears that the US Navy used a similar blue and white with fouled anchor motif, but no letters.
US Navy seems to use several different of anchors... some fouled with rope, some with chain.

The Admiralty seems to be more 'standard'. Here is one piece, a nice piece. Picked it up an antique ship about 30 years ago. 7" height, 5 " dia 1 qt. White with blue markings. RN Officer's Mess. The cover is chrome with lid fitted with 'automatic' counterweight spout. Dated 1955.

Latin anyone?

So sure now certainly my charger with BN lettering would be from
the old Greek Navy….
with impressed Doulton marks to base I wonder in that period ,(1880-1910 maybe?)
how many other overseas Navies did Doulton supply? not the US one I would imagine!,
their plain furled anchor fairly commonplace.
