In 1867 the pottery of T Tough & Co in Portobello, Edinburgh, was bought by Alexander Buchan and Thomas Murray. They traded as Murray and Buchan, changing to A W Buchan & Co in 1882 when Murray dropped out of the partnership. They moved to larger premises in Crieff, Perthshire.

In the early days the bread-and-butter lines were stoneware storage vessels and stylish containers of various kinds. It was not until the end of the nineteenth century that decorative domestic wares were produced; slip decorated during the first half of the twentieth century and painted or printed in the second.

Buchan ceased trading in 2000. 

Dimensions: 10cm tall, small 5.5cm opening.
