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

The pattern is called 'ROSE & LILY'. The strap handle has a flat thumb piece to make pouring easier.

By the middle of the 19th century, the area of Glasgow and the Clyde basin was undoubtedly the heartland of the Scottish pottery industry. The Glasgow potteries produced a wide range of wares, from high quality porcelain to the ubiquitous transfer printed earthenware.
