Wash basin

This earthenware wash basin was made by the Glasgow potters J. & M.P. Bell & Company Ltd. The pattern is called 'DUNKELD' and the basin dates from between 1881 and the 1920s.

The interior of the basin is transfer-printed with four identical groups of stylized green flowers and leaves.

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.
