This soft paste porcelain jug was possibly made by William Reid's pottery at Newbiggin near Musselburgh in East Lothian. It is inscribed 'Elizabeth Thomson' and dates from the early 19th century.

The jug is hand-painted with flowers and a rural scene of a man, a cow and a milkmaid.

Reid established a pottery at Newbiggin near Musselburgh at the beginning of the 19th century. He ran it until his death in 1835. After several changes of ownership, the pottery finally closed in 1928.
