Soup plate

This transfer-printed earthenware soup plate was made by Robert Cochran & Company, at the Verreville pottery in Glasgow. It dates from the second half of the 19th century.

The pattern is called 'WINDSOR'. Decorated on the border only, the abstract pattern consists of scrolls, flowers, diaper pattern and branches of fruit.

By the middle of the 19th century, the area of Glasgow and the Clyde basin was undoubtedly the heartland of the Scottish pottery industry, with several of the biggest firms such as J & M P Bell and Robert Cochran's Verreville and Britannia potteries.
