Mystic Moments is delighted to offer one of the largest collections from The Witches of Pendle to be found anywhere on the internet.
This collection is a beautiful coven of exquisitely made witches based on the historical Witches of Pendle Trials.
If you have not heard of this terrible event in history, here is a brief description -
In 1612, 19 women and men from the villages around Pendle Hill, were accused of Witchcraft and taken before 'The Powers' - the local magistrates, Roger Nowell of Read Hall. After his examination, he sent them to Lancaster a journey of over 30 miles. They were held in Lancaster Castle, in dreadful conditions, from April to August 17th, when they were put on a trial found guilty and hanged.
With the exception of Alice Nutter, who was a gentlewoman from a wealthy family, the rest of the accused were very poor peasants, who lived in hovels on the land of various local farmers and gentry. They knew the ways of the countryside, and probably made a penny or two by providing herb potions and medicines, which meant they were regarded with great superstition by local people.
Although the story of the Pendle Witches is very sad, they have achieved international recognition
From key rings to dolls and light catchers, from ceramic ornaments, to beautiful flying witches, there is something for everybody.
If you are looking for a particular witch and cannot find it on this site, please contact me and I will do my best to supply it.
All the prices for witches are inclusive of carriage within the UK. However I am more than happy to ship worldwide - so please contact me for details.
