Rye Pottery's Wife of Bath was the very first figure designed based on Chaucers Canterbury Tales. She continues to be one of the most popular characters in the collection. The Wife of Bath is the only figure in the series modelled by sculptor/painter Gordon Davies, and was originally conceived as a one-offÂ character for Canterbury Cathedrals gift shop. In her early days she was hand-painted only in Cobalt Blue & White, but today her decoration now ties in with the ranges medieval colour palette of Cobalt Blue, Terracotta, earthy Browns and a soft Sherwood Forest Green.
