Admiral Lord Nelson – Sunderland
Attributed to Phillips & Co, Sunderland – 1807–1812 or
Dixon, Austin, Phillips and Co –1813–1818
Below, three Phillips & Co mugs, and a similar creamware jug. The first two mugs with typical Sunderland Pottery frogs with red eyes.
This canary yellow jug was also likely made before 1820 during the Phillips & Co period at the Sunderland Pottery.
Dixon, Austin & Co, Sunderland Pottery – 1818–1839
This has the same transfer as the canary yellow jug above, but was likely made in the 1820s.
A mug from the 1820s with an elaborate moulded handle more usually found on jugs from this period.
Admiral Lord Nelson – Tyneside
Attributed to Robert Maling, Ouseburn Bridge Pottery
These Maling-attributed jugs can be dated relatively accurately by the height of the masts under the bridge, as the plate was reengraved and passed many times through heavy rollers, the masts become longer until they almost touch the bridge. This jug was likely made in 1840, 35 years after Nelson's death.
Maling made these heavily lustred jugs with wavy red stripes around 1840. See the lifeboat page for further examples.
