The Gauntlet Clipper Ship – Sunderland
The Garrison (Dixon's) version has a small scratch (indicated below) above the word 'Ship'. The small boat above the word 'Ship' has a letter 'S' on its flag.
Some of the other transfers that appear with the Gauntlet on Dixon items are shown below.
Moore's Pottery 1
In the Moore's version, there is no letter 'S' on the flag of the small boat above the word ship. The wave shading is also different.
Attributed to Moore's Pottery 2
It is difficult to compare the transfer which curves around this small jug, but it is a different version to those above and below.
Scott's Pottery 1
The original copper plate for this transfer is in the Sunderland Museums collection. There is a scratch on the plate in the centre sail on the foremast (indicated below) that appears on Scott's items, but not those from Dixon's or Moore's.
The Scott version has diagonal shading over the clouds behind the sails at the front. Scott left, Dixon centre, and Moore right in the details below. The Scott and Dixon transfers are remarkably similar, so it's possible that they come from the same transfer plate, which changed hands when the Garrison Pottery closed in 1865. So perhaps Scott's had the Dixon plate re-engraved, and it acquired the scratch above sometime after it changed hands.
Typical Scott's wares with the transfer are shown below.
