The image of John Wesley and his last words, 'The Best Of All God Is With Us', as well as 'Thou God Sees Thou', were transfer-printed onto this Sunderland lustreware plaque.

Transfer printing is a technique of decorating porcelain or pottery using an engraved copper or steel plate from which a print on paper is taken. This is then transferred by pressing onto the ceramic object.
