Soup plate

This glazed earthenware soup plate is marked, 'JB' for the Glasgow potters, J. and M.P. Bell and Company. It dates from the second half of the 19th century.

The plate is plain apart from a series of blue lines around the rim.

This company, which became one of the biggest and best known potteries in Scotland, was founded by the brothers John and Matthew Perston Bell and was in production by 1842. The Glasgow Pottery, or 'Bells' as it was more commonly known, produced a wide range of wares.
