hare pottery the bath   PEDLAR WITH TWO HARES ON HIS BACK

The pedlar, a poor man without hose, plies his trade with two hares in the basket on his back, one blowing a horn. The two hares may be mother and daughter (the hare blowing the horn has a grey coat and the other hare a brown one) and the image decorates the lower margin of the service of prayers for St Lucy whose close relation to mother is remembered in the Lessons as well as her dedication to helping the poor.
