Product Description

Emma Bridgewater - Greshams School Grasshopper 1/2 Pint Mug

Ancient legand tell us of Rodger de Gresham who was the founder of the Greshams Family, a foundling abandoned as a new - born baby in the 13th century. He was believed  to be found in the long grass of North Norfolk by a woman who was alerted to him by a grasshopper. A truly beautiful story but it is more likely that the grasshopper is a play on words on the name Gresham, the grasshopper appears on the crest above the schools coat of arms. 

It is said that the Gasshopper represents wisdom & nobility.
