Soup plate, made in Glasgow

This earthenware soup plate was made around 1891 by Glasgow potters J. and M.P. Bell. It was produced for export to south-east Asia.

The plate's 'Ayam Jantan' pattern shows a cockerel with a flowing tail, and a smaller hen. The design was registered in 1891.

John and Matthew Perston Bell's company became one of the biggest and best-known potteries in Scotland. In production by 1842, the Glasgow Pottery, or 'Bells' as it was more commonly known, made a wide range of wares.
