Riding to hounds is depicted by this premium embossed pitcher by Wedgwood in a carefully raised scene which also depicted the song about D'Ye ken John Pell.
Perfect for milk at the breakfast table or daisies at the table. Remarkable for its quality and ability to coordinate with a variety of table linens and settings.
The old English translates to: Do you know John Pell? He was a famous rider in the countryside. (1776 to 1854)
There was a famous song about him. The lyrics were:
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?
