Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: Wonderful 1930's musical stein/mug featuring John Peel, a well-known English Hunstman by Crown Devon Fieldings. The mug shows a colorful image of Mr. Peel wearing his top hat and "hunting pink" overcoat, smoking a pipe in nicely painted detail and opposite him is the Fox. Between the two images is the famous first verse of the song written by Peel's friend John Woodcock Graves, it reads: "D'ye ken John Peel with his coat so gay? D'ye ken John Peel at the break o' day? D'ye ken John Peel when he's far, far a-way. With his hounds and his horn in the morning? For the sound of his horn brought me from my bed, And the cry of his hounds which he oftime led, Peel's "View, Halloo!" could awaken the dead, Or the fox from his lair in the morning." The base of the mug features a wooden disc and brass knobs to wind the music box and plays the song D'ye ken John Peel.
