Add to album

This lustre-glazed earthenware bowl, dating from between 1842 and 1880 was made by the Glasgow potters J. & M.P. Bell & Company. The pattern is called 'BRITISH & FOREIGN BIRDS'.

The outside of the bowl is decorated with dark blue transfer-printed branches on which are painted green leaves and two exotic birds.

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.
