West View of Cast Iron Bridge... (rectangular) – bridge 14
Phillips & Co, Sunderland Pottery
The imprint on the first jug below is much lighter, which makes comparison of the transfers difficult, but all three have a diagonal scratch below the first lamp post to the right of the centre of the bridge.
Below, a jug shown with 'Ascent of Aerial Balloon' transfer. There's a similar jug from the Willett Collection, shown in Baker, p61, and dated 1813–1819.
Dixon & Co, Sunderland Pottery
Above an early imprint from the transfer on a creamware jug, 1818 to early 1820s. Below, a pair of marriage jugs and two others similar, also likely from the early to mid 1820s. The last has a hand-painted image of a ship.
Below two later imprints from the 1830s with coloured over enamels. The details from the first jug. The second with a personal inscription and the date 1831.
The Nelson commemorative jug below has an inscription '1839' and this version of the bridge transfer. Interestingly, the imprint from the transfer is stronger on this later jug.
Dixon, Phillips & Co, Garrison Pottery
Below is a jug that, from its lustre decoration, I could easily have attributed to Carr and Patton in North Shields. However, there is a diagonal scratch on the sail in the foreground, next to the broken wall, that also appears on the items above.
Below are two bowls with a degraded version of the transfer, perhaps late 1850s, just before the opening of the new bridge.
