RD 334640 corresponds to Sowerby pattern 1404 vase  (page 8, pattern book IX of 1882) -as per Cottle. The classical figures on the sides depict the four seasons, apparently. See also attached photo of an example in Ivory Queen's Ware.

RD 334641 correspond to Sowerby pattern 1394 vase (page 11, pattern book IX of 1882) - as per Cottle. See also attached photo of an example in black vitro-porcelain with applied gilt highlights.

RD 334642 corresponds to Sowerby pattern 1423 vase or trough (page 8, pattern book IX of 1882) - as per Cottle.

RD 334643 is a somewhat of a problem in that it could correspond to one of three covered mustard pots shown on page 36 of pattern book XI, 1885). The shape of the finial on the lid  and the wide top rim would seem to suggest pattern 1396, it is shown as from a registered design, and the pattern number is in the right 'ball park', but the sides flare upwards and the handle is a plain loop.  The Sowerby pattern 1802 covered mustard (and its pattern 1798 'larger' version) has the 'correct' handle (with a small triangular aperture below the main loop) and straight sides, but the finial shape does not match, the top rim is narrow, it is not shown as from a registered design, and the pattern number is 'out of sequence'.

Does anyone have photos of actual examples of these patterns to show, please?

Fred.

big thanks Fred for adding your contribution to these Registrations  -  but doesn't it go quiet when you ask those questions. ;D ;)

I did wonder if there was a hole in the mustard lid.
