Dixon, Phillips & Co, Garrison Pottery
This transfer appears on a large pedestal bowl, which although unmarked, is of a form and decoration typical of the Garrison Pottery, c1860.
Scott's Southwick Pottery
There is a small scratch on the transfer plate, to the right of the word 'destined' that appears on both the items above. See details below (jug left, eel pot right).
Below, two more items with the verse. Interestingly, the jug does not appear to have the scratch after the word 'destined' so was likely made before the two items above. The frog mug is later, c1860.
Ball's Deptford Pottery
The mug and jug below, made at the end of the 19th century, come from the same transfer plate as the items above. The mug has crude enamelling associated with Ball's pottery.

Carr and Patton, Low Lights, North Shields
These jugs have features associated with North Shields. The first two have an attractive blue enamel. All have signature North Shields' lustre decoration on the handle terminating in several horizontal brush strokes. The date, 1843, would put them in the Carr and Patton period.
This combination of brick red and yellow decoration appears to be particular to North Shields in the 1840s. The handle has the signature 'North Shields' lustre decoration, terminating in horizontal strokes. Note on the transfer the small scratch under the second letter 'e' in 'destined', which appears on the first jug above.
Below is a frog mug with the transfer, c1840.
