Postcard of Ashet.
© National Museums Scotland


An ashet is a large plate, platter or serving dish. This glazed earthenware example with transfer-printed pattern was possibly made by Keeling and Company of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire. The design was registered in 1890.

The pattern is called 'STIRLING'. The border includes a geometric pattern with flowers which trail onto the central surface.

Keelings are still based in Stoke-on-Trent today. They are wholesalers of ceramics, bone china, pottery, crystal glass and fancy goods.
