Earthenware bowl decorated with pink lustre and black transfer prints. In the interior is a compass rose with shipping behind and a design of the 'THE MARINER'S ARMS' being an anchor on a shield with sailor supporters, a ship as crest and the motto 'DEUS DABIT VELA'. Also two verses within floral borders 'Thou noble bark of brightest fame,/That bear'st proud England's honoured name,/Right welcome home once more,/Welcome, thou gallant little sail/In England's name I bid thee hail./And welcome to her shore', 'Glide on my bark the summers tide,/Is gently flowing at thy side;/Around thy prow the waters bright/In circling rounds of broken light/Are glitt'ring as if ocean gave/Her countless gems to deck the wave'. On the exterior the arms of the 'ANCIENT ORDER OF FORESTERS' and two verses within floral borders: 'This is a good world to live in/To lend or to spend or to give in/But to beg or to borrow/Or get a man's own/It is such a world/As never was known', 'The sailor tost in stormy seas/Though far his bark may roam/Still hears a voice in every breeze,/That wakens thoughts of home,/He thinks upon his distant friends/His wife, his humble cot/And from his inmost heart ascends,/The prayer forget me not'.
