A large bone china breakfast cup with wren design and gaelic words by Duncan Ban MacIntyre
The wording, which describes a wren singing, comes from gaelic poem Song to Coire a’ Cheathaich (A song to the misty corrie) byDonnachadh Ban Macan t- Saoir (Duncan Ban MacIntyre). Donnachadh was born in Glen Orchy in 1724, worked as a forester, a gamekeeper, a soldier, and a constable for the Edinburgh guard. He died in Edinburgh in 1812 and was buried in Greyfriars Kirkyard. Edinburgh. His song or poem talks of the joy found in the hills that can be remembered even in the mist that so often surrounds Scottish Hills. Here he talks of how we are to remember how a wren sings melodiously despite the mist of the glen. This poem is a perfect match to the wren design, to remind us of the lovely wren singing when we are drinking our cuppa.
