Received wisdom has it that these green-flecked jugs were made by C,C & Co in North Shields. However, the green flecks are also found on Maling impressed plaques made at the Ouseburn Bridge Pottery. I have recently acquired a green-flecked jug that shares a transfer with these firmly attributed Maling plaques. So we know that Robert Maling made at least some of these green-flecked jugs. All the jugs on this page appear to come from the same pottery.
The first jug below has blue enamel that doesn't appear on later items.
All three jugs above have the scratch on the letter 'W'.
A smaller jug dated 1836, again with the scratch.

Dating these jugs is not a precise science, but the later versions tend to have more vibrant yellow enamels..
