Angus Seats

The name of this pattern derives from the fact that many of the subjects are derived from William Angus, The Seats of the Nobility and Gentry (1787), though some of the views are composites. For further information see Dick Henrywood's The Transferware Recorder 2, 17.

The meat dish is 269mm long and 200mm wide. Earthenware.

Angus Seats small meat dish source print

The source print for the centre view is Angus, Plate 16, 'Cusworth in Yorkshire, the Seat of William Wrightson, Esqr.' The print is dated 1 December 1788. The enormous trees behind the house are not part of the source print and were clearly added to fill the otherwise blank space.

The pie dish is 160mm long, 121mm wide and 38mm tall.

The dinner plate. Earthenware.

Angus Seats dinner plate mark

This "Ridgway" impressed mark is rare and occurs on both earthenwares and bone china pieces. The period over which it was used is uncertain. There was a concensus that it postdated the similar impressed "Ridgway & Sons" mark, but the discovery of a vase of pattern 1001 with the "Ridgway & Sons" mark has thrown this idea into some confusion. Only the discovery of further marked pieces will help to solve the puzzle.
