Rare and fine pair of substantial terracotta urns on stands by the Lochhead Fire Clay Company, Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland.

Fire glazed terracotta.

Each fully stamped with the impress mark "Lochhead Fire Clay Co. Dunfermline"

The Lochhead Fire Clay Co. owned and ran a number of coal mines and clay mines. The Tables compiled by J.B. Atkinson, H.M.Inspector for the East Scotland District in his Report for 1896, lists all mines worked under the Coal Mines Regulation Act, in Fife, during the Year 1896. The survey states Lochhead had 32 people working underground at coal faces and clay pits, and 3 surface workers who were staff involved in manufacture of their fire clay products.

Each of the pair in three sections, as shown in the images here; a base plinth, a bowl mount and the large bowl. There are minor small fills and minor chip, but commensurate with their age. They have acquired a weathered patina and look just great!

Size; 46 in high, 25 ins, bowl diameter.
