Mug: Masonic Apprentice
In creamware, with a black transfer print, enamelled by hand, of Masonic symbols. A song or poem is printed below which appears to be the song of welcome for the admission of a newly apprencticed Freemason.
The World is in Pain
Our Secrets to Gain
But still let them wonder & gaze on
For they never can divine
The word nor the sign
of a free and accepted Mason
Two minor star cracks to glaze, visible in photos, but still a rare early example of Masonic ware.
