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
This bowl, c1850, has two versions of Tynemouth Haven. The larger transfer on the jugs above beside a smaller vignette similar to the transfers on the later North Shields items below.
Attributed to John Carr and Sons, North Shields – plate 2
A slop bowl likely c1870.
Attributed to John Carr and Sons, North Shields – plate 3
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.
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 mug above. Again, the decoration is typical of the Newcastle Pottery.
An eel pot with the same transfer, and similar decoration.
Attributed to James Wallace & Co, Forth Banks, Newcastle Pottery – 1838–1858
The first mug is attributed to the Newcastle Pottery on account of its decoration to the items above. However, the second mug, apparently with the same transfer, appears much like mugs made at North Shields.
