Footnotes

  • Emanuel Lerche was a Bohemian glass engraver who arrived in Edinburgh in 1853. In 1873 he moved to Alloa in Clackmannanshire to work for W. & J. A. Bailley at the Alloa Pottery. Emanuel worked with his son Stephen at the Alloa Pottery, where, almost uniquely at the time, they employed the traditional glass engraving techique of copper wheel engraving to decorate pottery vessels.

    A number of pieces were donated by the Lerche family to the National Museums of Scotland
