Do any of these items bring back fond memories?
Week 12: Glass Platter
This beautiful clear glass platter was produced for the Glasgow International Exhibition in 1888 as part of the Commemorative ware.
Circular with a scalloped edge, it has “Let Glasgow Flourish” embossed on it as well as the date of the exhibition, May 1888.
Geometric patterns and thistles fit round the inscriptions.
Perhaps one of the MacDougall's attended the exhibition or it was given as a present?
