West View of Cast Iron Bridge... – Tyneside potteries
I have broadly arranged this page under the headings of the North Shields partnerships from 1828 to 1846. See here for more detail. However, it is possible that some of the sub groups came from other potteries that copied their decoration.
Cornfoot, Colville & Co, North Shields, 1828–1832
Wheat-ear decorated jug – group 1
This is an earlier (late 1820s) version of Baker's bridge number 12, found on creamware items.
Wheat-ear decorated jug and mug – group 2
Note, unlike the other versions of this transfer, there is no pair of vertical ropes hanging to the left of the sail in the foreground.
Cornfoot, Carr & Co, North Shields, 1832–1838
Green-fleck decorated jug – group 1
This is the common rectangular version recorded by Baker as bridge view number 12.
There are horizontal scratches on the sail in the foreground that appear on the bridge transfer of all these jugs.
Green-fleck decorated jug – group 2
A rare Tyne version of the oval bridge transfer, unrecorded in Baker.
Green-fleck decorated jug – group 3
Another rare oval transfer unrecorded by Baker. This was used on medium sized jugs.
Unidentified Tyne pottery
This is similar to the North Shields transfer below.
