© National Museums Scotland


An ashet is a large plate, platter or pie dish. This earthenware example was made by William Reid's Pottery at Newbiggin, near Musselburgh in East Lothian. It dates from around 1830.

The centre is transfer-printed with a blue 'Chinese' printed pattern, a version of the willow pattern.

Reid established a pottery at Newbiggin near Musselburgh at the beginning of the 19th century. He ran it until his death in 1835. After several changes of ownership, the pottery finally closed in 1928.
