Just noticed your latest blog and I wondered if you had noticed the cone of the Lowlights Pottery on the lower right of the transfer on the jug ? I have attached the only photograph I can find, which shows the area around the pottery flooded after heavy rain in October 1900. The pottery was situated behind the Low Lights Tavern, which is not visible in the photograph.
A friend of Ian Holmes, M Jackson, has provided a sound track for this blog piece (click here). Although it is an American hymn, it apparently enjoyed popularity in the North East of England.

My gr grandmother Catherine Hussey probably did the transfer on the jug when she worked at Low Lights Pottery in the 1880's. I think the pottery closed in 1894.
