covered dish with stage on the bottom

These two pieces appear to match however, the covered dish is older I believe with lots of crazing. They both say semi-vitreous and East Liverpool. The covered dish has a stag but the other one has a different mark. The pitcher also has numbers in gold on the bottom.

Still looking for clues
by: C. Templin

I finally broke down and bought these two pieces. Now I can give more information since I can examine the bottoms of both pieces. The lidded dish has a picture of a stag on the bottom and it says W&C Co. trade mark. Semi-vitreous opaque china.

The second piece has a different mark altogether. Looks sort of like a crown and in the top it says: Semi-vitreous porcelain, in the middle of the mark it says USA, and underneath the mark its says East Liverpool Potteries Co. It also has this mark which I assume is date and place marks #35.40 the last digit is marred so a zero is my best guess.
