"The Paragon China Company was a British manufacturer of bone china which started in 1919 based in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, previously known as the Star China Company. In 1972 Paragon became a part of Royal Doulton who produced the china under the Paragon name until 1991. The Paragon name was discontinued in 1992 and although some patterns continue to be produced under the Royal Albert name, this too was discontinued by Royal Doulton. Paragon was noted for producing high quality teaware and tableware, and was granted royal warrants of appointment by several members of the British Royal Family." (via wikipedia)
"Paragon often numbered their pieces using a pattern number for each series with a letter prefix and sometimes a suffix of /1, /2, etc., which designated the color of the pattern if the pattern was available in different colors."
