Offered for sale is a "The Knight" figure. Part of the collection of Rye Pottery's hand-painted figures based on the pilgrims from Chaucer's renowned Canterbury Tales. The noble character of the ‘parfit gentil Knight’ is well displayed both in his powerful horse and his ornately decorated cobalt tunic with rather splendid turban-style head gear. "There was a Knight, a most distinguished man, Who from the day on which he first began to ride abroad had followed chivalry, Truth, honour, generousness and courtesy, In all his life to any; comes what might; He was a true, a perfect gentle-knight". The driving design influences for this collection are Neville Coghill’s translation of Chaucer's original text and the few illustrations of the Pilgrims shown in the Ellesmere Manuscript. The perfect gift for Chaucer fans or medieval literature buffs alike. Their timeless quality allows them to fit into any interior style.
