“Let Brotherly Love Continue”
This Masonic jug by an unknown maker shows two men wearing top hats and Masonic aprons. The crown they are holding shows a GR, which probably signifies that the jug was made around the time of the coronation of George IV in 1821. If you are a TCC member, this is pattern #5659 in the database.
Thanks to Judie Siddall for preparing the “Pattern of the Month."
"Fisherman" by Enoch Wood & Sons (1818-1846). This 7" plate is from the 1835-1846 period. Although this plate is printed in underglaze brown and blue, the pattern is also found printed in combinations of red and black, blue and black and red and green, and probably more color combinations! The factory also used different borders for this series, as well as different centers, a highly unusual occurrence.
Plate, 9 inches. As there is no other name, the pattern is known by the number printed with the name of the factory, Enoch Wood & Sons (1818-1846.) Although the pattern looks oriental, it is actually a romanticized version of an oriental pattern, and thus is found in Romantic Themes/Oriental in the database.
