Porridge bowl

This porridge bowl was made in the mid 19th century at James Jamieson & Co.'s pottery at 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
