The inscription reads: ‘VIRO DOCTISSIMO BENJAMIN HEATH MALKIN L.L.D. SCHOLAE REGIAE BURIENSIS NUPERRIME MAGISTRO. HOC VAS DEDERUNT PRISTINI DISCHIPLINAE SUAE ALUMNI SUMMAE IN EUM OBSERVANTIAE MONIMENTUM ET AMORIS PIGNUS A.D. MDCCCXXVIII.’

This vase was presented to Benjamin Malkin Heath (1769-1842), a noted scholar and antiquary, upon his retirement as headmaster of the Grammar School at Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, a position he had held since 1809. He is chiefly remembered now for his friendship with and promotion of the work of William Blake (1757-1827), the English poet, painter and illustrator. Among his many writings Malik is credited with having penned the first and fullest account of Blake’s early life.
