Ancient Order of Foresters – Sunderland
Garrison Pottery 1
This transfer appears on larger Garrison items like the jug (from c1850) and punch bowl below.
The bowl is later (c1860) and the transfer plate has worn (compare the bottom left detail with the jug above).
The images below show some of the other transfers on the bowl.
Garrison Pottery 2
Garrison Pottery 3
This distinctive variation of the transfer appears on Moore's plaques of the 1860s and on later wares marked 'Scott'.
This version of the transfer is very similar to 'Garrison Pottery 2' and might come from the same copper plate. The copper plate likely changed hands when the Garrison Pottery closed in 1865, and Scott's had it re-engraved. Note the symbol (a hunting horn?) in the lower left quadrant of the shield (bottom left detail) has almost entirely worn away, and compare it with the Garrison 3 version above.
The transfer on the Scott-marked bowl appears to be from the same copper plate as the plaque above. The symbol in the lower left quadrant is yet more degraded.
The Foresters Arms – Tyneside
The Tyneside versions have a different title and appear on earlier items from the 1830s and 40s.
The short spout and deep lustre are typical of the Newcastle Pottery. As is the yellow band on the second jug below.
