I recently found a piece which I believe to be by William Smith & Co. I have shared some photographs in the link below, including the pattern which I believe is number 9, or "Orphans". However this does not correspond with any descriptions of this pattern number that I have come across. It is transfer printed in purple. I'm not even sure what the piece is. It has two very crude lion's heads on it which look like handles. It unfortunately also has a large chunk missing from the base.
Does anyone have any further information on this piece?
Thanks in advance!
