Ashet (detail)
Add to album

This detail shows the mark of the Glasgow potters, J. & M.P. Bell & Co. Ltd. It is on the base of a transfer-printed earthenware ashet dating from between 1881 and the 1920s.

There were many variations in Bell's marks. This one consists of a circular belt with a bell in the centre. On the belt are the company initials 'J. & M.P.B. & Co. Ld.'. Above the belt is the pattern name 'BRAEMAR'. On either side of the belt are the initials 'C' & 'F'. 'GLASGOW' is on the scroll underneath.

Like many other potteries in the second half of the 19th century, Bell's most popular ware was transfer-printed earthenware, which was durable, decorative and affordable by the masses. Some designs were extremely well produced
