All of the anonymous marks listed below can be found in: K. Church, 'J & W Ridgway - Anonymous Marks', Northern Ceramics Society Newsletter 107 (September 1997), 14-19. Since that article was written knowledge has increased until it is safe to says that most of these anonymous marks would have been issued under Job Ridgway & Sons, rather than under John & William Ridgway.

It clearly is a toll bridge as there is a large fence with a gate in it on the right hand end of the bridge exactly in the line of sight of the viewer so it appears as a thin vertical line, but you can see the baulks of timber holding it upright, and the gate is open. There is heavy fencing round the left hand end to prevent people climbing round. If anyone knows what bridge this is I would be grateful for the information.

It is good to see provenance labels even though they become meaningless out of context. Someone loved this piece enough to record the family member from whom it descended.

Pattern 862

For dessert wares with the same decoration see here.

This pattern is important as the only example I have yet seen of bone china wares in the shape.

The covered vegetable dish is 328mm long, 235mm wide, and 220mm tall overall.
I am concerned this may be a marriage as there is a slot in the cover for a ladle and it does not fit the base very well.
There is considerable oxidation of the enamels, particularly the greens. This may have been sat in direct sunlight for long periods.

"Beauties of America" series

The print shows what I can only assume is an artist's impression of Benjamin Henry Latrobe's modification of Doctor William Thornton's original design, the central section of which had not been finished when the building was partially burned by the British in the War of 1812. The dome as completed in 1823 by Charles Bullfinch was much taller and had copper cladding. The building was completely rebuilt with its current dome in the 1850s to the design of Thomas U. Walter.
