Saut bucket, made at Townhead, Glasgow

This earthenware saut (Scots for 'salt') bucket was made around 1850 at the Caledonia Pottery at Townhead in Glasgow.

The saut bucket has a pale blue body with figures of Tam O'Shanter, Soutar Johnnie and Kirkton Jean, and white glazed sprigged decoration.

The Clyde basin, like the Forth, was a natural location for the pottery industry, with a ready supply of coal, a growing market and good transport links.
