Ashet (detail)

An ashet is a large plate, platter or serving dish. This detail is from a late 19th century earthenware ashet and shows the maker's mark - 'R C & Co' which stands for Robert Cochran & Company of the Verreville Pottery in Glasgow.

The mark appears on the under side of the ashet as does the pattern stamp, 'Bull Finch'.

By the middle of the 19th century, the area of Glasgow and the Clyde basin was undoubtedly the heartland of the Scottish pottery industry, with several of the biggest firms such as J & M P Bell and Robert Cochran's Verreville and Britannia potteries.
