The Rye Bowler – William Lillywhite £197.50

The first of our Rye Pottery Cricketer’s, designed in 2002, is The Bowler.

Shown wearing the Rye colours of red & black he is modelled on William Lillywhite, who played for England, Sussex and Rye!

You can see the second of our Cricketing figures  if you click here, The Rye Batsman, who is based upon Fuller Pilch of Kent, Sussex & England.

Widely recognised as the greatest Bowler of his time and the greatest to have played the game before the subsequent emergence of W.G. Grace, William Lillywhite was also known by the nickname “The Nonpareil”.

And he started life as brickmaker, so clay was a large part of his life and upbrigning –  the cricketing fans at Rye Pottery didn’t need further encouraging!
