Miscellaneous Numbered Transferware Patterns

Dick Henrywood

Various firms used pattern numbers on their transfer-printed wares and separate articles cover those used by William Smith & Co. of Stockton, the Goodwin firms of Longton, the Everard firms of Longton, and the Hackwood firms of Shelton and Hanley. No other potteries appears to have used a consistent numbering scheme, but a variety of numbered wares are found and the examples shown below may help in grouping some together, eventually leading to possible attributions. This is not remotely a comprehensive list and there must be many more examples to be recorded. Contributions from other collectors would be most welcome.
