Ashet
Add to album

An ashet is a large plate, platter or serving dish. This transfer-printed earthenware example was made by R.A. Kidston & Company of the Verreville Pottery in Glasgow. It dates from around 1840.

The pattern is called 'SYRIA'. The centre shows five figures by the edge of a lake with buildings and mountains in the background. The border decoration is cut into sections, each showing a house or dog roses, against a tile background. This pattern was also produced by other potteries.

Robert Kidston helped run the Verreville Pottery at Finnieston on the Clyde from 1827. He took over as sole owner in 1838. Robert Cochran became his partner in 1845 and two years later Cochran took over the company as Robert Cochran & Co.
