Pearlware figure of the actor Thomas Potter Cook, in costume as Ben Backstay and dancing The Hornpipe, for which he was famous.

Ben Backstay was our boatswain
A very merry boy
For no one half so merrily
Could pipe all hands ahoy
And when unto his summons
We did not well attend
No lad than he more cheerily
Could handle the ropes end
