East View of the Iron Bridge over the River Wear;
Sunderland Coal Trade – bridge 32
Attributed to Moore & Co, Wear Pottery – creamware
This transfer is attributed to Moore's on the basis of the marked pink-lustre jug in the next section which shares this version of the transfer. The decoration of the jug suggests it was made in the 1820s.
The description of this coffee pot, on Marcelle Boer's Pinterest page, states that it was made for a Dutch coal merchant. Marcelle's comment that 'the lid is made now' implies that he had a lid made up to match the pot. Similar hand-painted script appears on Moore items from the 1830s. Marcelle, if you ever read this, please get in touch by the link at the bottom of the page.
Moore & Co, Wear Pottery – pink lustre
This is Baker's bridge 32, attributed to Dawson by Baker, but appearing on a jug with a printed mark 'Moore & Co Southwick', under the verse transfer.
Below are two mugs with the transfer and similar over-enamel decoration to the jug above. The first is dated 1837. The second, from the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums collection, has similar brushed decoration to the green and red 'Edwin Tapp' jug below.
The next group of jugs are attributed to Moore's on the basis of their similarity to the marked, pink-lustre jug above. The transfer appears to be from the same copper plate. The jugs have a distinctive tall shape and similar lustre decoration around the spout as the jug above. The bridge transfer above from the first jug below.
Attributed to Moore & Co, Wear Pottery – green and red decoration
Again this is Baker's bridge 32, but appearing on jugs with typical green and red decoration associated with Moore's in the 1830s & 40s. The second is dated 1838.
