King of the Devon Pixies Pewter Key ring These charms are the genuine official article. Each Charm is crafted by hand in Cornwall from solid Pewter using Cornish Tin These charms come attached to a display information card and are dispatched from the official ‘Joan the Wad’ and ‘Polperro Piskey Shop’ in Polperro Cornwall. Size 40mm (H) x 26mm (W) charm The Pixies are the little people who from time immemorial have inhabited the wild parts of Devon. Their King is Jack O’ Lantern and his Consort Joan the Wad of Cornwall. Jack O’ Lantern’s influence extends all over the world and he stands for the spirit of Eternal Youth, ever doing things, building things, and making life better and happier. It is not so very long ago that both Jack O’ Lantern and Joan the Wad were accepted as very real persons whose help and Goodwill were eagerly sought after. These same traits appear to remain to today as owners of either Jack or Joan or both have testified by their hundreds. Dr. Jonathan Couch in his History (1871) wrote: “Jack O’ Lantern, Joan the Wad, Who tickle’d the maid and made her mad Light me home, the weather’s bad.” The Rev. S. Baring Gould in his book on Folk-lore traces the pixies back to the days before the Romans and always in contact with metal. Another devotes a whole chapter to Jack O’ Lantern and several other to pixies in general. And finally there is the Devonshire verse which runs as follows:- “Jack O’ Lantern was born in a wood, Jack O’ Lantern was born to be good. He may not be seen, he may not be heard, But His life’s as pure as the shyest bird. So therefore if you would most benefit get, bide faith in good Jack and forget fear and fret” ALWAYS DOING GOOD ALWAYS LUCKY
