Bowl (detail)

This detail shows the mark of David Lockhart & Sons' Victoria Pottery in Pollokshaws in Glasgow. It is on the base of an earthenware bowl dating from the 1860s or 1870s.

The mark consists of two concentric circles surrounded by laurel wreaths on either side and a crown on the top. The inscription contained within the circles reads 'CLYDE/D L & S'.

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.
