Q: Can you help me identify this mark or give me any other information about the company? It says “Strathmore, D.L. & Co.” I believe the plate is ironstone.

A: This mark was used by David Lockhart & Co. at Victoria Pottery in Glasgow, Scotland. The pottery made transfer-printed earthenware. David Lockhart and Charles Arthur founded Lockhart & Arthur in 1855. It became David Lockhart & Co. in 1865 when Arthur left the company and was in business under that name until 1898. The name was David Lockhart & Sons (Ltd.) from 1898 to 1953. Your plate was made between 1865 and 1898. “Strathmore” is the pattern name.

Strathmore, D.L. & Co.
