Jug or Pitcher c1825 Maker: Ridgway  Pattern:Angus Seats Series
Jug or Pitcher c1825
This fine jug is an enigma. At first sight this is from the Angus Seats Series by John & William Ridgway, a series of views of English and Scottish stately homes and castles, taken from Seats of the Nobility and Gentry engraved by W. Angus. However, this jug has a view of Lanercost Priory, Cumberland on one side taken from The Beauties of England & Wales by Britton & Bayley and an unidentified scene probably inspired by the same source on the other. The framing of the scene, the stringing round the rim and the floral border all have differences from the Ridgway series, so one is left with the conclusion that this jug is actually in the style of Angus Seats, but made by another potter. To assist searching we have left the maker and pattern unaltered, although not strictly correct as descriptors! The jug itself is a magnificent rare survivor and of excellent quality. No backstamp. Light all over crazing and a little wear and loss of glaze to the rim. Overall excellent condition and a stunning jug.
Dimensions: 1.4 ltr, 14 cm high / 2.5 pint, 5.5 ins high

Meat Dish or Platter Raby Castle Durham c1820 Maker: Ridgway  Pattern:Angus Seats Series
Meat Dish or Platter Raby Castle Durham c1820
This series was made by John & William Ridgway of Cauldon Works, Shelton, Staffordshire active 1814-1830 and comprises views of English and Scottish stately homes and castles, mainly taken from Seats of the Nobility and Gentry engraved by W. Angus. This scene is of Raby Castle in County Durham, at Staindrop, between Barnard Castle and Bishop Auckland. No maker's backstamp, which is usual with this Series, as it is rarely found marked. Provenance: The personal collection of Gresham Copeland, passing by descent to his son Robert Copeland. Collection identification label on back AGC 576. The glaze is finely crazed and there is some associated staining, worse on the back than the front, also visible utensil marks. The rim is worn and discoloured. It is one of those pieces that once it is on the dresser it looks fine.
