This salad plate, cup and mug combination are from Sunderland Lustre Ware in England.  They bear many of the early symbols of Freemasonry and the Motto frequently used within the Fraternity "SIT LUX ET LUX FUIT" and also sometimes written, Lux fiat et Lux fit, signifying Let there be light, and there was light (Genesis i, 3); the strict translation from the Hebrew continues, "And the Lord took care of the light, that it was useful, and He divided the light from the darkness."  Sunderland Lustre ware is becoming more and more scarce while its popularity continues to grow among collectors.
