In slate blue jasper over pale blue, an allegorical illustration showing Hercules choosing between Fame and Pleasure. Modelled by Hackwood in 1787; this tablet is probably from that year or very shortly after.

There are some inscriptions on the back that are intriguing, but we've not managed to connect the EJ Bourne referred to with the brick-layer of the same name who worked at Wedgwood during this period.

Invisibly restored.
