Soup plate

This earthenware soup plate was made in the second half of the 19th century by Robert Cochran & Co. at their Britannia pottery in Glasgow. It was designed for the south-east Asian market.

The pattern on the plate is called 'POMEGRANATE'. The centre has a stylized pomegranate with large flower-heads. The design uses two separate colours.

Robert Cochran, already the owner of the Verreville Pottery, established the Britannia pottery as a modern works in 1857, primarily to meet the Canadian export trade.
