Ashet, made at Bo'ness, West Lothian
Add to album

An ashet is a large plate, platter or pie dish. This earthenware example was made around 1850 at James Jamieson & Co.'s pottery at Bo'ness in West Lothian.

The ashet is decorated with transfer prints including, in the centre, a view of the Royal Institution, now the Royal Scottish Academy, on the Mound in Edinburgh.

James Jamieson & Co produced a series of very fine transfer printed designs called 'Modern Athens', showing different landmarks in the 'Athens of the North' (Edinburgh).
