A spill vase group of Robert Burns and Highland Mary seated on a titled base with the second verse of Highland Mary printed in black transfer, Burns with his left arm around Mary’s shoulder, his right hand holding hers, wearing a cap, neckerchief, jacket, scarf, waistcoat, and trousers, Mary wearing a bodice, apron, dress, and a hat resting on her knee. The title transfer reads:

How sweetly bloomed the gay green bird,

How rich the hawthorn’s blossom!

As, underneath their fragrant shade,

I clasped her to my bosom!

The golden hour, on angel wings,

Flew o’er me and my dearie:

For dear to me as light and life

Was my sweet Highland Mary.
