Scope and Content Ceiling plaques from interior of manager's house at Dunmore Pottery, Dunmore, Stirlingshire From the early 19th century, Dunmore Pottery made tiles and domestic ware using local clay from Dunmore Moss, and superior clay from Devon and Cornwall. The surviving remains date from after about 1860 when it was bought by Peter Gardner of Alloa. These ceiling plaques representing classical scenes come inside the manager's house. They are typical of the pottery's colourful faience work and may have been installed in honour of a visit by the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, in 1887. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
