With the idea that pictures are sometimes worth a thousand words, anti-slavery images were an important and powerful tool used by abolitionists. Objects decorated with anti-slavery images were used to raise awareness of the abolitionist movement and were also often sold as fund-raisers for abolitionist organizations.
The motto, "Remember Them that are in Bonds," is from the Biblical passage Hebrews 13:3; "Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body."
