Bowl (detail)
Add to album

This detail shows the mark of the Clyde Pottery Company of Greenock in Renfrewshire. It is on the base of a transfer-printed earthenware bowl dating from between 1863 and 1900.

The mark consists of a scroll inscribed with the pattern name 'HEATHER BELL' placed on top of two springs of blooming heather. The company initials, 'C.P. Co.' are underneath.

A pottery at Greenock was established in 1815 under the title of 'The Clyde Pottery Company'. It was run by Thomas Shirley & Co from the 1840s until 1857. Thereafter, it continued as the Clyde Pottery Company Ltd until 1863. From then until 1900 it was known as the Clyde Pottery Company and from 1900 until its closure in 1905, it reverted back to Clyde Pottery Company Ltd.
