Are you saying that your base was different due to it not being marked with makers name?

Yours looks just like mine un-marked, but same everything else.

I attribute it to being an early piece made by the Cox Brothers, possibility starting in the 1840s and also from Troy, NY.

First made by the Cox Brothers, possibility starting in the 1840s and also from Troy, NY. The molds stayed with the "Cox" side of the business as the names changed and kept making them until the end of the business, Not sure when that was. But Cox, Whiteman & Cox was still in business in 1878.
