Portobello Potteries Ceramic Resource Disk 6



My work on the Portobello ceramic resource disk was funded by Historic Scotland. The shard material was catalogued using National Museums of Scotland accession numbers (FD.2006.1 to 659), and the catalogue has been divided into fabrics, types, forms, and decoration, in (11 folders and 93 word files), illustrations (1 to 621), and comparable extant examples have been illustrated using the letters (a to p). The mixed ceramic assemblage was recovered from various episodes of work on the site of the Portobello potteries, where a number of different potteries were in production from c1765 until 1970.
