Slave medallion. White and black unglazed stoneware (jasper) medallion modeled in relief with a kneeling manacled figure of a slave with his hands raised in supplication. Above the kneeling figure, in raised letters is the motto: "AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER?". The medallion was probably modeled by William Hackwood and was manufactured by Josiah Wedgwood. The design of the medallion was based on the seal of the English abolitionist society.
