Bitter-sweet Sugar Bowl....

Slave artifacts

Small cup with scene of a slave being whipped . . . . White china printed in green, 19th century
75 diameter x 68mm high

Small cup with a tropical scene showing an overseer whipping a kneeling and chained enslaved African and the verse:

'From Sun to Sun the Negro toils

No smiles reward his trusty care,

And when the indignant mind recoils,

His doom is whips and black despair'
