Hicks 'No.2' table shape

This shape is referred to in the factory pattern books as 'No. 2 shape', or 'No. 5 shape', which is, as you can see below, the same thing.

'Mason's No. 1'

Pattern C/3538

 

Pattern 1

There has been some argument about the number of this pattern. The vast majority of pieces I have seen have no number at all. The pattern is, however, listed elsewhere on the web as number 6, and certainly the one piece that I have with a number on it, has a "6" written in green. The discovery of a plate of the real Pattern 6 does, however, mean that the handwritten "6" must be a tally mark. The print is called 'Gold Bird' in the factory pattern and pattern description books, but, by the time they were compiled, the print had moved on to different shapes, so they are of no help in confirming the number. In the factory engraving department, which I visited just before the factory closed, the print was referred to as 'Mason's No. 1'. I therefore took '1' to be the pattern number. Certainly the backstamp is identical to that on pattern '2', without the number, so that seems probable.

For other wares with the same print see the 'Gold Bird' page.

Davenport also made a version of this print.
