Everything I can find about Queen Anne points to the manufacturer as being
Shore and Coggins Ltd Longton 1910 1966
Shore & Coggins Limited produced china ware in their Edensor Works, New Street and the High Street Works, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, England.
The firm dates back to 1887 when it was known as J. Shore & Co. In 1905 a new partnership was formed with Shore, Coggins & Holt, this partnership survived 5 years until 1910 when Shore & Coggins Limited was formed.
Shore & Coggins also traded under the Bell China name, this range pre-dates the Queen Anne, but was produced until the close of the works in 1966.

Most of the Queen Anne production dates from around the late 1940's -to the close of the works . Princes Anne was also used c.1959 onwards.
The odd thing is that many of these Queen Anne cup and saucers are marked Ridgway Potters.
Now Ridgways has no mention of Queen Anne in their bio
and there is no mention of them having taken over Shore and Coggins
Ridgways, at Bedford Works, Shelton, was founded by Edward J. Ridgway, son of the famous Master Potter William Ridgway of Hanley. Well-known in the ceramic industry in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Job and George Ridgway, of Shelton, are mentioned on Allbuts' map of 1802, and in 1820 they were making extensively for the American market, being among the leading potters supplying the New World with decorated wares-showing American buildings, scenery, arms of the United States, portraits of Washington and other Americana. John Ridgway was honoured by being appointed Potter to Her Majesty Queen Victoria and earned high commendation at the 1851 Exhibition. The catalogue informs the Victorian public that 'The Establishment of Mr. Ridgway is one of the largest and among the best conducted of the many factories of Staffordshire'. Ridgway materially assisted in establishing a School of Design and founded a scholarship in this connection. The present firm specialises in vitrified wares, tiles and a full range of earthenware tea and dinner sets.
More investigation needed.
