This transfer-printed earthenware plate was made by the Clyde Pottery Company Ltd of Greenock in Renfrewshire or Campbellfield Pottery Company Ltd of Glasgow. It dates from the late 19th or early 20th century.

The pattern is called 'LOTHIAN'.

A pottery at Greenock was established in 1815 under the title of 'The Clyde Pottery Company'. It was run by Thomas Shirley & Co from the 1840s until 1857. Thereafter, it continued as the Clyde Pottery Company Ltd until 1863. From then until 1900 it was known as the Clyde Pottery Company and from 1900 until its closure in 1905, it reverted back to Clyde Pottery Company Ltd.
