Vegetable dishes

These two glazed earthenware vegetable dishes were made by the Glasgow potters, J. & M.P. Bell & Co. Ltd. They are part of a dinner service made between 1881 and the 1920s.

The dishes have been transfer-printed with a poppy and bindweed design on the inner surface of the bowl and a leaf-scroll design round the rim.

This company was one of the biggest and best known potteries in Scotland. It was founded by the brothers John and Matthew Perston Bell and was in production by 1842. After John's death in 1880, the new limited company continued production.
