Sunderland Pottery, Phillips & Co., “Duke of Wellington” c.1815 SOLD

A rare Duke of Wellington commemorative creamware jug manufactured by Phillips & Co., Sunderland Pottery c. 1813- 1819.

The transfer of His Grace the Duke of Wellington bears the name of the engraver “W.Cockburn” (sculpt).Walter Cockburn is recorded as an engraver living in Sunderland, from c.1804 -1814

The West view of the Iron  Bridge also bears his initials “W” to the lower left of the transfer and “C” to the right; as well as the factory mark: Phillips & Co., Sunderland .The verse beneath the spout also bears the factory mark “Phillips & Co., Sunderland Pottery”

The transfer of  Arthur Wellesley (1769 -1852) astride his horse, Copenhagen, is sourced from the print “The Marquis of Wellington K.G., Field Marshall”, engraved by Joseph Constantine Stadler,( fl. 1780-1812). The print was published in 1813. Although not identical, for instance, the left hind leg of Copenhagen is raised to the rear, whereas in the engraving, his leg is showing forward. Other similarities in the engraving show marching soldiers on a hillside, along with a church in
the background. A castle flying the Union Flag has been engraved within the transfer, not shown in the original engraving.

The similarities are too compelling not to say that the prints is the source for the engraving.

There are several short  feint hairlines in the rim of the jug, also a  small chip to the inside of the top  rim.
There is also a chip to the inside of the footrim.

The transfers are enamelled and the body of the jug is decorated with black banding, typical for the period.

The date of the engraving and the factory marks would suggest a date of c.1815.

Height of the jug to the tip of the spout: 8 inches (20.5 cms)
