A small earthenware jug, decorated with lustre and a transfer print to the right of the handle, showing a sailor departing from his wife and children. It is inscribed: 'THE SAILORS, FAREWELL,/Sweet! Oh: Sweet is that Sensation,/Where two hearts in union meet,/But the Pain of Separation,/Mingles bitter with the Sweet.' On the other side, within a floral garland with a cutter above is the verse: 'The Sailor tost on 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'.
