This delftware mug is dated 1659 and decorated with the arms of the Carpenters' Company. The compass represents the tools of the trade and the chevron symbolises a roof support. These mugs were probably made for carpenters, including both members of the Company and non-members, who might have used the coat of arms in an unofficial capacity.
