Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Adam Cubie, who was succeeded by Adam C Williamson, established the Wellington Pottery in 1797 at 50 Wesleyan Street, Gallowgate, Glasgow , where, by 1889, it covered a 4,000 square yard site and employed around 50 people. The company later relocated to 604 Gallowgate Street, Glasgow, and by 1929 was operating at North Canal Bank Street, Glasgow. The pottery specialised in ornamental flower pots and vases which were traded all over the UK. The company appears to have ceased trading in the mid-20th century prior to 1953.
