The Pheasants on Emma Bridgewater Pheasant mug look so real you’ll want to shoot them!
The mug features handpainted Pheasants walking inline and ‘Pheasant’ wording in light blue on the inside of the cup.
The mug features boys only as Male Pheasants are highly colourful (more so than females) have longer tails and adorn wattles (the part that hangs from his neck) making him a more visually appealing bird.
Pheasants are common in the English countryside but are native to Asia. The Romans introduced them to Europe, and they came to the UK around one thousand years ago. It’s thought the Normans bought them here.
