West View of the Cast Iron Bridge – Sunderland
Dawson, Low Ford Pottery
This is Baker's bridge 10, marked 'J. Dawson & Co, Low Ford Pottery'. The shape of the jug suggests it might have been made before 1820.
A jug of similar age and shape decorated with hand-painted flowers.

West View of the Cast Iron Bridge – North Shields
Baker attributes this view, bridge 22, to Dawson's Low Ford Pottery, but I'm unsure on what basis, except perhaps that it resembles bridge 10. It seems more likely to me that the creamware mugs below are from Tyneside.
Attributed to Bird & Co, North Shields, 1823–1826?
This mug has a version of the transfer that appears on lustre jugs from North Shields in the 1830s.
Attributed to Cornfoot, Carr and Co (1832–1838) or
Carr and Patton, Low Lights Pottery (1838–1846), North Shields – large version
This transfer was almost certainly used under both of the above partnerships at North Shields. In the absence of a dated inscription it is hard to attribute the jugs below to one partnership or the other. The later items are more heavily potted and tend to have darker lustre.
