Ashet
Add to album

An ashet is a large plate, platter or serving dish. This transfer-printed earthenware example was made by the Glasgow potters, J. & M.P. Bell & Company. It dates from between 1842 and 1880.

The pattern is called 'BRACELET'. The ashet's rim is decorated with borders of geometric pattern - beading, rope twist and medallions containing Maltese crosses.

This company, which became one of the biggest and best known potteries in Scotland, was founded by the brothers John and Matthew Perston Bell and was in production by 1842. The Glasgow Pottery, or 'Bells' as it was more commonly known, produced a wide range of wares.
