Misleading Pieces

On this page I will present some of the pieces that have been mistaken for Ridgway at times. Where they are attributable to another factory I will state the attribution.

 

New Hall

Yates

 

New Hall

New Hall jugs and mugs have been mistaken for early Ridgway sprigged wares. They do have a certain similarity, but the handle form is quite different, and distinctive.

The mug is 85mm high and 95mm in diameter. The handle protrudes 29mm.

See David Holgate, New Hall (London, 1987), p.107, pl.94.

Yates

Yates had a fractional numbering system, and did number their pieces in a very similar way to Cauldon Place. The shapes and the style of decoration are, however, quite different. An expert has informed me that the gold upper bar to the handle is a typical Yates feature.
