Green-fleck decorated jug – 'the Iron Bridge at Sunderland'
There is a small scratch to the right of the kiln chimney that shows this transfer is from the same copper plate as the wheat-ear jug above. But at some point the plate has been re-engraved. Note the rope cutting diagonally across the sail in the foreground.

Green-fleck decorated jug – group 2
This jug, although decorated in a similar way to the Robert Maling-attributed items above, belongs to a standalone group of green-flecked items. The neat teardrop application of the green enamel is different to that found on the items above. It has a rare Tyne version of the oval bridge transfer, unrecorded in Baker.
