Scope and Content Possil Pottery, 85 Denmark Street, Glasgow This pottery was founded in about 1881 for the Saracen Pottery Co, earthenware manufacturers. Addition were made in 1902 for Macdougall & Sons, wholesale, retail and export glass, china and earthenware manufacturers, who by that time owned and operated the works. This shows the surviving building in 1967, which was probably the original block of about 1881. It would originally have been a moulding and pressing shop for items to be fired in kilns at the rear. The latter had been demolished by 1967. This was one of the last potteries to operate in Glasgow, which was at one time a centre of the trade, and this building was one of two 19th-century pottery buildings surviving intact in the mid-1960s. It was subsequently demolished by the late 1980s. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
