Soup plate

This transfer-printed earthenware soup plate was made by the Glasgow potters, Robert Cochran & Company. It dates from the second half of the 19th century and was exported to South East Asia.

The pattern is called 'AGRA' after the Indian city of the same name, located around 100 miles south-east of Dehli and known for the Taj Mahal. The centre of the plate shows a large eastern building with domes and towers. Steps from a small summer house lead down into a garden with trees.

This pattern was also produced by J. & M.P. Bell's Glasgow pottery.
