Postcard of Ewer.
© National Museums Scotland


This transfer-printed earthenware ewer was made by Lockhart and Arthur of the Victoria Pottery in Glasgow. It dates from the mid 19th century.

The pattern is called 'ETRUSCAN'. The sides of the ewer are printed with a classical scene which includes two female figures under a tree with jugs in the foreground and buildings and mountains in the background. This pattern was also produced by a number of other companies.

The Victoria Pottery was originally established by David Lockhart and Charles Arthur in 1855. In 1864 Arthur resigned and the company became Lockhart & Company and later, the more distinctive David Lockhart & Company. In around 1888, Lockhart's sons joined the company and it became David Lockhart & Sons.
