As a fairly new collector of Transferware, 5-6 years, it is a maze, when searching through all of the books, and sorting out the conflicting information.. I am very confident in your summation. I look forward to hearing more about "mining for treacle" and more conversations about these jars.
In reference to the patent, I don't think the author of the BBR article realized that these early jars were potted when very few British ceramics were covered by patent rights.
I was hoping from the picture of my jars you could help date them. They seem to span a longer period of time then I originally thought.
Best wishes, Debra
