A good quality early 20th century Scottish heavy cast silver Pepper, made in the form of a Newhaven Fishwife, standing with her arms folded. Pierced head and screw-off base. By W.H & S, Edinburgh 1926 Literature The Scottish fishwives of Newhaven had a reputation for their beauty and industry and so were celebrated by royalty — George IV and Queen Victoria. They were hard-bargainers though, and all the fishermen of the Firth of Forth brought their catches to Newhaven for the fishwives to sell in Edinburgh. The fishwives wore distinctive costumes of blue duffle coats covering layers of colourful striped petticoats with a muslin cap or other similar headdress. Their fish, such as haddock and herring, were carried on their backs in creels.
