Lot Details
Two Sunderland creamware mugs and a jug, circa 1793-96
The ovoid jug probably Sanders and Co, printed and coloured with a view of the Iron Bridge, the reverse with the launch of a ship titled 'May Carpenters Flourish and our Trade Increase and Victory bring a Lasting Peace', 18.5cm (handle restuck, cracked and chipped), one mug printed in black with another view of the Wear Bridge, 13cm, the other mug with a three-masted ship lightly picked out in colours, 15.4cm (cracked and chipped) (3)

Footnotes

  • The jug and first-mentioned mug are illustrated by Tom Walford, Early Creamware from North East England, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Visited (2005), p.93. Tom suggested that the mug was made when the bridge was being built between 1793 and 1796, by virtue of the wording on the inscription. Close examination of the Wear Bridge print on the jug reveals that part of the date of opening appears to have been touched in by hand, suggesting 1796 as the year of manufacture. A slightly later version of the same print is recorded signed 'J Dawson and Co Low Ford Pottery'.
