WEDGEWOOD, JOSIAH. "Humanity." Heavy pewter box (humidor?), 5-3/8 x 3-1/2 x 3 inches, a representation of the English and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society's logo, designed by Josiah Wedgewood; some oxidation, not affecting the design at all. Np, circa 1795-1834

Additional Details

An unusual appearance of the famous image of the kneeling slave, whose motto usually reads 'Am I Not a Man and Brother.' In this example the motto reads simply 'Humanity.' We have seen a box like this once before, cast in iron.
