Earthenware jug

This earthenware jug was made in 1873 by Robert Cochran & Co. at either their Britannia or Verreville pottery in Glasgow.

The plain jug is painted with 'J. Carmichael 1873' on the body and marked 'R Cochran & Co., Glasgow' on the base.

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.
