Attributed to Robert Maling, Ouseburn Bridge Pottery – mid to late 1820s
Wheat-ear decorated eel pot and jug – group 2
The eel pot and jug below come from the same copper plate as the large jug above. Note the diagonal scratch just above the rear sail.
The jug below is also likely from the same transfer plate although the scratch is less obvious.
Smaller version of the transfer
In this variation of the transfer, the sails are only partially shaded. The painting of the enamels is very similar to those in group 2 above.
Attributed to Robert Maling, Ouseburn Bridge Pottery – early to mid 1830s
The jugs above and below come from the same transfer plate as the items from wheat ear decorated group 2 above (left detail). Note again the diagonal scratch above the rear sail. It appears that the transfer plate has been re-engraved for use on these green-flecked jugs.
The jug below has an inscription dated 1833.
