The mould M213b, is as you suggest paper that was made for the Essex House Press, founded by C.R.Ashbee, his Guild of Handicraft founded in 1888, the press in 1898, the last book being printed in 1910. One of the books from the press that I have, bears the same watermark, this was printed in 1899.
I hope this of help to you

I am impressed with the photos and appreciate your comments about the moiré effect, a problem I encountered when photographing moulds from Wookey Hole.

I did wonder whether Mould 213 was made to celebrate 10 years of a horticultural society 1888 to 1898?
