Bowl (2 of 2)

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

The interior rim is decorated with a transfer-printed continuous pattern which includes a red flower. The bottom of the bowl has a dark blue transfer-printed branch on which is painted green leaves and an exotic bird.

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.
