Cup & saucer (detail)

This detail shows the mark of David Lockhart & Company's Victoria Pottery in Pollokshaws in Glasgow. It is on the base of a transfer-printed earthenware saucer which dates from the 1860s or 1870s.

The pattern name 'GLENESK' and the company initials 'D L & Co' are contained within an octagonal shape.

The Victoria Pottery was originally established by David Lockhart and Charles Arthur in 1855. In 1864 Arthur resigned and the company became Lockhart & Company and later, the more distinctive David Lockhart & Company. In around 1888, Lockhart's sons joined the company and it became David Lockhart & Sons.
