This coaster is a Gillian Kyle tribute to Burke & Hare - Edinburgh's infamous grave diggers!
"Doun the close and up the stair, But an' ben wi' Burke and Hare. Burke's the butcher, Hare's the thief, Knox, the boy that buys the beef."
This design is from the 'Local Heroes' range by Gillian Kyle in collaboration with young Scottish illustrator Clare Forrest; celebrating colourful characters past & present.
