Mystery Doulton

To add to my list of chunky objects left on the foreshore, here’s a mighty, rectangular stoneware jar from Doulton & Co (Ltd).
I love lots of things about this jar, the size for one – this piece makes up the top left hand quarter of the jar. Other points if interest are, I think, marks of error, such as the slight double vision effect of the makers mark, stamped in twice, and the three strange vertical fork tine marks running along above the markers mark. Any further information would be greatly appreciated.

Doulton & Co were manufacturers of stonewares and earthenwares at Lambeth in London, c.1854-1956. The porcelains were and still are made at Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, from c. 1882 to present day.
