Plate, made at Alloa, Clackmannanshire

This plate was made in the late 19th century at W. & J.A. Bailey's pottery at Alloa in Clackmannanshire. It is very similar to plates being produced by Belfield's Pottery in Prestonpans.

The relief-moulded plate is decorated with 'majolica' style multicoloured glazes.

Alloa was an important coal mining centre, and a pottery (and eventually a glassworks) were established by the 1790s to take advantage of the abundant fuel and locally available clay. The pottery at Alloa finally closed in 1907.
