Attributed to Carr and Patton, North Shields – 1838–1846
Two imprints from the same transfer plate. The engraver has achieved drama and naturalism rarely seen on North East items of pottery.

John Carr and Sons, North Shields – plate 1
A nice crisp early imprint from a smaller transfer with the title Tynemouth Haven. Note the scratch between the lighthouse and the ship. This small jug was likely made in the 1840s.
This bowl, c1850, has the two versions of Tynemouth Haven. Note, again, the scratch between the ship and the lighthouse.

The brick red text on the first mug below is typical of John Carr in the early 1850s. The elaborate lustre decoration around the collar of the jug is also a feature associated with Carr.

A slop bowl likely c1870.
Attributed to John Carr and Sons, North Shields – plate 4
This transfer is very similar to the one above, but the clouds suggest it comes from a different transfer plate. It appears on a bowl with transfers that Carr recycled from the Seaham Pottery. This London impress is known to have been used by Carr, presumably when supplying wares to a London retailer.
Below is another bowl with the transfer, perhaps earlier, and a less clear London impressed mark.
Attributed to Redhead, Wilson & Co, Forth Banks, Newcastle Pottery – 1833–1838
A nice clear imprint of the transfer on a Newcastle frog mug from the 1830s. The unusual decoration is reliably attributed to the Newcastle Pottery.
A similar mug with typical 'Newcastle' red enamel decoration and flattened frog.
Although this imprint on this dated bowl from the mid 1830s is more smudgy, it appears to be from the same copper plate as the mugs above. Again, the decoration is typical of the Newcastle Pottery.
An eel pot with the same transfer, and similar decoration.
