The Token or Jack's Safe Return to his True Love – Sunderland
See the Flag That's Braved page for an overview of this series of transfers.
Moore & Co, Wear Pottery, Sunderland
Two bowls with the transfer, both with the Moore & Co impress and Crimea transfer.
Below a jug with typical Moore lustre decoration. It has a transfer of the New Sunderland Bridge, so post 1859.
Scott of Southwick – plate 1
A jug with typical Scott flower decoration around the collar, from the 1840s.
As discussed on the Flag That's Braved page, Scott's had a second, slightly simplified, copper plate engraved (right detail), most likely when the first became worn or damaged. This second copper plate (see below) was used throughout the Crimean War period, c1855.
A similar jug with a hand-painted inscription for 1845. The bridge transfer has an obliterated Scott & Sons printed mark.
Scott of Southwick – plate 2
Below, two jugs with lustre decoration typical of Scott's in the 1850s, and a bowl with the Crimea' transfer, c1855.
An eel pot or butter dish with very similar enamelling to the items above.
The transfer on the plaque is a fainter imprint making it hard to compare. It is likely from a similar date as the items above.
Thomas Snowball, Sheepfolds Warehouse
Sheepfolds Warehouse is know to have a side line in glass rolling pins, and many examples have Moore / Scott transfers. This appears to be the Moore version at the top of this page.
Ball's Deptford Pottery
The copper plate for this version of the transfer was donated by the Ball family to the collection of Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. At a later date, someone added the fake printed inscription 'Dixon, Phillips & Co, Sunderland' to some of the other transfers on the copper plate (see bottom right below). My guess is that this was done sometime after the Garrison Pottery closed in 1865 and with the intention to deceive.
The second bowl below has washes of coloured over-enamels.
Scott of Southwick, Sunderland or Ball's Deptford Pottery
A simplified version of the transfer, post 1870 when orange lustre became fashionable.
Ball's Deptford Pottery
The bowl below is firmly attributable to Ball's Deptford Pottery and has the Sailor's Farewell transfer that appears on the copper plate donated by the Ball family to the collection of Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums.
The Token or Jack's Safe Return to his True Love – Tyneside
C T Maling, Ouseburn Bridge Pottery, Newcastle
The Maling copper plate (below right) now resides in the collection of the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne (Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums). See here for an image of the other transfers on the copper plate.
The transfer appears on a wash bowl with an impressed mark. The large jugs beneath it are typically unmarked.
