West view of the Cast Iron Bridge... (oval) – Sunderland
These pages show the most common view of the Bridge over the River Wear. The Dixon and Scott versions of this transfer have their own separate pages. Unlike the Dixon versions, there are no railings above the brick bulwark on the left side of the bridge.
Moore & Co 1
No sail boat in foreground (see bottom centre and right details). Two buildings to top right of bridge.
Moore & Co 2
Two buildings to top right of bridge. Row of vertical marks on the sail in the centre of the transfer. Typical red and green enamel decoration from the late 1830s and 40s.
Moore & Co 3
Very similar to the transfer above, but no row of vertical marks on the sail in the centre of the transfer. This jug is unusually well decorated and dated 1852.
