Researchers also showed that ink deposits in them results in a chronic enlargement of the exposed nodes.Now that the presence of these nano-scale metals and oxides in the lymph nodes of tattooed individuals is proven, figuring out exactly what that means is the next step.On smaller wares, only the bottom half of this mark (i.e. Although B.8 was generally used between 19 B.7 is occasionally found on wares made during these years.This mark which differs from B.7 by the omission of the crown was in use between 19. The bottom part only of this mark is found on smaller wares up to the present day and by itself is not a useful indication of date.Maybe next time you head to the tattoo parlor for a zap, ask your artist whether their tattoo ink contains macro- or nano-scale oxide particles—or maybe not.
The study found that it was the smaller nanoparticles of ink that were transported to the lymph nodes, but researchers couldn’t establish a size limit that would prevent the ink’s transport.
The ink-lymph mixture is carried through the lymph nodes, whose job it is to process and filter harmful substances from the body.
None of this is really news — tattooed individuals have displayed pigmented lymph nodes for decades.
The coronet was probably added to the earlier mark c. The Prince of Wales' (later King Edward VI 1), ENGLAND was added underneath after 1891. It appears to have been used instead of B.3 especially on bone china products and on the more expensive earthen wares.
This mark was in general use at Burslem between 19.
The trade-marks were, however, changed several times between the 1880s and now, and these can help to establish the period of production.
