Pattern 625

The Melting Snow border was attributed by Geoffrey Godden to Hicks & Meigh, but that misattribution was corrected afterwards by Geoffrey & Alma Barnes.

Michael Berthoud illustrates two tea cups of this shape, the second of Pattern 1952, in A Compendium of British Cups (1990), p.124, Plates 743-4, and a creamer of Pattern 2053 in A Cabinet of British Creamers (1999), p.138, Plate 827.

Pattern 4880

This Leaning Rose shape has long presented a problem of identification. Previously we have seen only Mazarin border patterns with the leaning rose edge moulding picked out in gold. They were considered as of uncertain origin, possibly Ridgway. Since these grey border patterns have come to the fore it has become clear that the style of gilding fits Alcock better than Ridgway. Patterns in this shape are generally in the 4000s

Pattern 3/9199

Greek Revival patterns were done by a number of factories, including Cauldon Place, in the mid to late 1850s. Mostly jugs and vases were produced, but occasionally flatware as well. This one shows the Samuel Alcock mark used on these pieces, and the pattern number, done in the background black, has the characteristic "No." to the left of the lower part of the number. The 3/ series at Cauldon Place was only used for fancy wares, never for dessert wares. The 3/ series at the Broad Street Works was used for ironstone wares and earthenwares, never for bone china.

The dessert plate is 228mm in diameter. Bone china.

Pattern 4/5704

Although the style of landscape painting is similar to that used at Cauldon Place, there is no evidence that Ridgway ever used a 4/ number series (although Francis Morley did at the Broad Street Works, but only for ironstone wares and earthenwares). The pattern number is again in puce.

The dessert plate is 229mm in diameter. Bone china.
