Porridge bowl

This earthenware porridge bowl was made between 1826 and 1860 by J. Jamieson of Bo'ness in West Lothian.

The bowl is transfer-printed with a pattern called 'GOAT'.

Good supplies of coal and clay and easy transport by sea meant that the south side of the Firth of Forth was an ideal location for potteries to develop. Small-scale works existed there from the 17th century and larger factories developed from around 1750.
