Ashet
Add to album

This earthenware ashet was made between 1833 and 1838 by George Gordon of Prestonpans in East Lothian.

The ashet is transfer printed with a version of the blue willow pattern. It is marked 'Geo Gordon'.

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.
