Coffee pot made at West Pans, East Lothian

This porcelain coffee pot was made around 1770 by William Littler's factory at West Pans in East Lothian.

The coffee pot is painted with the arms of Pringle of Stichill in Roxburghshire.

William Littler arrived in Scotland in the early 1760s after the failure of his Longton Hall factory in Staffordshire. The founder of Scotland's porcelain industry, his factory made high quality, if uneconomical, wares until its closure in 1777.
