Ashet, made by Annfield Pottery, Glasgow

An ashet is a large plate, platter or pie dish. This earthenware example belonged to the family of Samuel Coulters, a Glasgow merchant. It was presented to the family in 1842 by John Thomson of Annfield Pottery in Glasgow's Gallowgate.

The ashet has a transfer-printed rural scene in the centre.

Annfield Pottery operated from around 1816 to 1887.
