Dawson inscriptions post-1830
The first jug below, dated 1834, has transfers that are firmly attributed to Dawson. The second, from the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums collection, has a bridge transfer with a printed Dawson mark. These Dawson jugs have distinctive lustre decoration around the collar.
An impressed Dawson plate, again with hand-painted enamel flower decoration and similar script.
Another, also with an impressed number beside the Dawson mark.
The following three jugs, although unmarked, appear to be decorated by the same hand as those above. They share a distinctive group of maritime transfers.
The bridge transfer has a printed Dawson mark.
The auction catalogue states: 'In the "Durham Mining Museum Master Index," Joseph Eggleston (1825-81) is listed as "Coal Miner".' Again, the bridge transfer has a printed Dawson mark.
The enameller who decorated this jug (from the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums collection) would produce similar inscriptions for Moore's Wear Pottery in the 1860s.
A distinctively shaped mug with an inscription for 1845 that appears to match the bachelor set below.
