Postcard of Jug.
© National Museums Scotland


This transfer-printed earthenware jug was made by Robert Cochran of Glasgow. It dates from the second half of the 19th century.

The pattern is called 'CHINA'. The oriental interior scene depicted on the side of the jug includes two figures communicating with each other. One figure stands next to a table.

The Clyde basin, like the Forth was a natural location for the pottery industry, with a ready supply of coal, a growing market and good transport links.
