All the items on this page come from the same transfer plate. The engraver appears to have slipped creating a scratch between the 'o' in 'Toss' and the 'T' in 'Then'. This is harder to spot in the last detail.
Attributed to Bird & Co, North Shields, 1823–1826? and

Received wisdom has it that these green-flecked jugs were made by C,C & Co in North Shields. However, the green flecks are also typical of those found on Maling impressed plaques made at the Ouseburn Bridge Pottery. I have recently acquired a green-flecked jug that shares a transfer with these firmly attributed Maling plaques. So we know that Robert Maling made at least some of these green-flecked jugs.
