Soup plate

This earthenware soup plate was made for export to South East Asia by the Glasgow potters, Robert Cochran & Company. It dates from the second half of the 19th century and was collected in Djakarta in Java, Indonesia in 1991.

The plate has been transfer-printed with blue pattern titled simply 'No 21'.

This plate is one in an extensive collection of Scottish plates found in the bazaars and markets of Java, Sumatra and Borneo, areas for which they were undoubtedly produced.
