Ashet
Add to album

An ashet is a large plate, platter or serving dish. This glazed earthenware example was made by the Glasgow potters, J. & M.P. Bell & Co. Ltd. It dates from between 1881 and the 1920s.

The transfer-printed pattern is called 'COREA'. The ashet border has a dark grey printed pattern of sunflowers, foliage and butterflies. The central panel has a design of irregular lilies and stylized foliage.

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.
