Frigate in Full Sail – Sunderland
Moore & Co's Wear Pottery and Scott's Southwick Pottery
The jugs with these ship transfers are always unmarked. The heavily lustred collars and zig-zag lustre decoration are, however, associated with Moore's pottery. Note that this transfer is nearly always printed in brown. The West View of the New Bridge transfer on the second jug suggests a date of post 1859 (the year the bridge opened). NB that bridge view and this transfer do not appear on orange lustre items, suggesting they were on the same copper plate, taken out of service by the mid 1860s. The Crimean transfer, also likely on the same copper plate, would have appeared outdated by then.
The collar on the jug below, decorated with a stripe of lustre, is more commonly found on earlier Moore items. However, the New Bridge transfer again points to a date after 1859.
A large inscribed jug of similar date, again pairing the transfer with the New Bridge.
The bowl below has a Moore impressed mark, and an inscription dated 1859. The 'Frigate in Full Sail' transfer is often paired with the 'Star of Tasmania' on bowls. However, I'm unsure that they were on the same copper plate.
Another bowl with a Moore impressed mark and heavily lustred rim, typical of that pottery.
See the rear of this photo for a plate with the SCOTT impress. Baker writes, that 'Scott's supplied earthenware to Moore's Wear Pottery [...] presumably plain for decoration' (Baker page 54).
Two plaques, again with brown transfers, typical of Moore's output in the 1860s.
Attributed to either John Carr & Sons, North Shields, or Ball's Deptford Pottery
The transfer makes a reappearance on a plaque form used by John Carr & Sons. However, it is possible that Ball's bought the plaque moulds when Carr's Pottery closed in 1893.
