Tea plate, made in Glasgow

This tea plate was made by Robert Cochran & Co. at either their Britannia or Verreville pottery in Glasgow. It dates from the second half of the 19th century.

The plate's 'Pekin' pattern features two Chinese figures. The plate is marked 'R.C. & Co.'.

The Clyde basin, like the Forth, was a natural location for the pottery industry, with a ready supply of coal, a growing market and good transport links.
