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, the Hackwood firms of Shelton and Hanley, the Deakin Partnerships of Lane End, and the Elkin/Knight firms of the Foley Potteries in Fenton. Few others appear to have used any consistent numbering schemes, but a variety of numbered wares are found and the examples shown below may help in grouping some together, eventually leading to possible attributions. These are predominantly from earhenwares and stone chinas; the subject of pattern numbers on porcelain and china is very different. 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.
