Postcard of Bowl.
© National Museums Scotland


This earthenware bowl was made by David Lockhart & Company's Victoria Pottery in Pollokshaws in Glasgow. It dates from 1899.

The side of the bowl is decorated with a yacht and a floral design which includes the text 'SHAM/ROCK/18/99'. This yacht won the America cup in that year. It was owned by Sir Thomas Lipton - the grocery chain owner.

The Victoria Pottery was originally established by David Lockhart and Charles Arthur in 1855. In 1864 Arthur resigned and the company became Lockhart & Company and later, the more distinctive David Lockhart & Company. In around 1888, Lockhart's sons joined the company and it became David Lockhart & Sons.
