First up ... A Sasieni Four Dot Rustic Viscount Lascelle S. Overall a beautiful Rusticated Grain, a pattern I have not seen often. The stem has four dots but they are not blue. Possibly faded

The nomenclature is there, but due to the shine on the nomenclature box it is very hard to read and photograph. It can be read under strong / diffused light. The nomenclature reads

Sasieni
Four Dot Rustic
London Made
Viscount Lascelle S

and across ... it has the circular made in England mark, but only a part of the mark is on the clear area

That Sasieni looks in great shape! The Rustic finish is a hand carved finish, that follows the grain pattern and it is one of my favorite finishes. It's not unusual for the blue dots to fade and one reason I prize a Sasieni with blue dots. The Viscount Lascelles is a somewhat rare Sasieni model, the S would be for the saddle stem.
