Please read my previous blog post first. Thanks to Keith Lovell and Ian Holmes for sending me photos of other items with Wesley transfers. It is harder to make the transfers out when they are applied to a rounded surface, but the ones below all appear to be the 'Southwick' Wesley, paired with a Charles Wesley verse. See the poetic verses pages for similar verses on plaques and a full transcription of the text.
Again, none of these items is marked. The first jug below does, however, have typical Scott of Southwick flower decoration.
Below is a different shaped jug with the same verse beginning 'How happy every child of grace...' (from the Charles Wesley hymn of that title).
Next a selection of mugs. The first with the same verse as above. The last two with the verse beginning 'Even now by faith we join our hands...' (from the Charles Wesley hymn 'Let Us Join Our Friends Above').
And yes, as we might hope, these verses appear on the small rectangular plaques I've attributed to 'Southwick' in my previous blog post. They also appear on orange-bordered plaques with round corners (like the crude Wesley and Clarke in the previous post) attributed to Scott.
Some more 'Southwick' Wesleys and a Clarke paired with Charles Wesley verses in the photos below. Click on the images to enlarge. The Clarke mug with the verse beginning 'O THAT I could my Lord receive...'.
And thanks to Shauna Gregg at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, for the following additional photos. The mug in the first three photos is attributed, by the museum, to Scott. The second mug is attributed to Ball's Deptford Pottery. This doesn't interfere with our attribution because, according to Baker, in November 1897 at an auction of Scott's effects, copper transfer plates were bought by Ball's. Ball's products tend to be crudely potted and poorly decorated, which certainly applies to some of the mugs above!
Stephen Smith lives in London, and is always happy to hear from other collectors. If you have an interesting collection of plaques, and are based in the UK, he will photograph them for you.
