Jamaica Gleaner / This week, we continue highlighting some artefacts from time immemorial and how they immortalise turning points that changed the course of Jamaica's history. An initiative of Arts and Education in collaboration with National Museum of Jamaica.

 

Jasper Ware Cup  

This jasper ware cup features the relief seal of the Abolitionist Society commissioned by Josiah Wedgwood in 1787.

Although the society for effecting the abolition of the slave trade was formed in England in 1787, the society issued a medallion showing a kneeling slave with the motto "Am I Not A Man And A Brother?" This emblem became the identifying image of the abolitionist movement and one of the most widely circulated.

From 1787 until his death in 1795, Josiah Wedgwood actively participated in causes for the abolition of slavery. Josiah's most important contribution to the movement for the abolition of slavery is the so-called Slave Medallion, which brought the attention of the public to the horrors of the slave trade.

In 1787, a Jasper copy of the emblem of the Society for the Abolition of Slavery was produced by Wedgwood. Such medallions were intended to adorn hat pins, brooches, and other fashion accessories in order to make known the suffering of slaves.

Britain's Committee to Abolish the Slave Trade adopted the phrase "Am I not a man and a brother?" as its motto in 1787, and anti-slavery campaigner Josiah Wedgwood began to reproduce the design on fashionable jasper ware medallions and seals.
