A large bone china breakfast cup with curlew design and words from Cicely Fox Smith
The wording on this lovely curlew design comes from a poem by English poet, Cicely Fox-Smith (1882–1954). She was born in Cheshire, travelled to Canada for 9 years and then lived in Hampshire and Devon. Although most well known for her sea shantys, she writes evocatively of nature, and here in "A farewell", written in 1904 before she travelled to Canada, she describes the call of the curlew across the moorlands.
Made in the UK.
