Postcard of Bowl.
© National Museums Scotland


This porcelain bowl was made around 1770 probably by William Littler at West Pans in East Lothian.

The bowl has eight panelled sides and is set on a simple ring foot. It is over-glaze painted with flowers and under-glaze washed with rosettes.

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.
