RYE POTTERY’S CANTERBURY TALES

The Guildsmen and their Wives

Chaucer mentions the specific Guilds in his prologue, and  when we first introduced a generic Guildsman and his Wife we realised there was huge scope for us to work with each of the named Guilds allowing us an exciting choice of costume especially for the wives. As it says in the Prologue: They had the capital and revenue,/Besides their wives declared it was their due./And if they did not think so, then they ought;/To be called Madam is a glorious thought.
