Success to the Coal Trade – Tyneside
Attributed to Robert Maling, Ouseburn Bridge Pottery – mid to late 1820s
It is likely this transfer of Tynemouth Haven, with the Priory and lighthouse in the background, that has led people to believe that these items must have originated in nearby North Shields. See the Robert Maling-attributed inscriptions page for more details regarding my attribution to Maling's Ouseburn Bridge Pottery. My guess is that Maling commissioned local views of interest to the shipping trade, including Tynemouth Haven and the Cast Iron Bridge over the River Wear in Sunderland.

This transfer is attributed Thomas Fell on the basis of the second jug below, which has decorative features and a Newcastle High Level Bridge transfer associated with that pottery.
