Description
Offered for sale is a Royal Doulton figurine "The Pied Piper" HN2102 designed by Leslie Harradine and was issued from 1953 to 1976. The Pied Piper of Hamelin, also known as (the Pan Piper or the Rat-Catcher of Hamelin) is the titular character of a legend from the town of Hamelin, Lower Saxony, Germany. The legend dates back to the Middle Ages, the earliest references describing a piper, dressed in multi coloured ("pied") clothing, who was a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magic pipe. When the citizens refuse to pay for this service, he retaliates by using his instrument's magical power on their children, leading them away as he had the rats. There are many contradictory theories about the Pied Piper. Some suggest he was a symbol of hope to the people of Hamelin, which had been attacked by plague because he drove the rats from Hamelin, saving the people from the epidemic.
