This ceramic egg cup is hand painted and modelled upon the distinctive features of a Herdwick ram.
Herdwick sheep are a heritage breed of sheep native to the Lake District. Beatrix Potter has a long association with the breed and even won prizes for her Herwick ewes. When she died she left 4000 acres of farmland to the National Trust with specific instructions that the land continue to graze Herwick flocks.
