This hexagonal-shaped glazed earthenware plate was made in Glasgow by J. & M.P. Bell & Co. Ltd. It dates from between 1881 and the 1920s.

The plate has been transfer-printed with a design of chickens hatching, with the title 'EVICTION' underneath.

This company was one of the biggest and best known potteries in Scotland. It was founded by the brothers John and Matthew Perston Bell and was in production by 1842. After John's death in 1880, the new limited company continued production.
