Porcelain Sunderland water pitcher with transfer print pattern of King Solomon's Temple in black and white, a transfer of a scene featuring the Iron Bridge, as well as Masonic poems: 1) "The world is in pain, our secrets to gain, But still let them wonder and gaze on, They ne'er (never) can divine, The word nor the sign, Of a Free 'an Accepted Mason." (2) "I envy no ones fame, their title train or dress. Nor has my pride ever stretch'd its aim beyond what I possess. I ask not, wish not to appear more beauteous, rich or gay. Lord make me wiser every year and better every day."
