West View of the Cast Iron Bridge
This view is perhaps the most striking omission from Baker's Appendix II of bridge transfers.
John Phillips, Sunderland Pottery
It's astonishing how black this early imprint of the transfer is. This likely dates from the John Phillips era at the Garrison Pottery, 1807–1812. On this early imprint you can just make out the engraver's signature W Cockburn to the lower left of the lion. Walter Cockburn is known to have engraved plates for Phillips and perhaps Dawson too.
Dixon, Austin & Co, Sunderland Pottery (1818–1839)
The first jug below dated 1828, and the last with an inscription for 1830.
The smaller jug below has the same transfer but decorated with coloured over-enamels. Again, there's an inscription for 1830.
Below a typical Dixon frog mug from the 1820s.
