Postcard of Bowl.
© National Museums Scotland


This earthenware bowl dates from the late 18th or early 19th century. It may have been made at one of the Scottish East Coast potteries or at a Staffordshire pottery.

The border pattern consists of quatrefoils and zigzags.

From 1750 onwards, large-scale potteries were established on the south side of the Firth of Forth, at Prestonpans, Prestongrange, West Pans, Musselburgh and Portobello. Much of the skilled workforce came from the older established Staffordshire potteries and consequently much of the pottery was similar to contemporary Staffordshire ware.
