Description
Over the years, Merry Old England came to adopt the thinking that a cricket in the home would ensure prosperity and health.

Inspired by this belief, the beloved 19th century English writer, Charles Dickens, titled one of his novels A Cricket on the Hearth. As testified by the tale, Victorians postured the little chirper by fireside in the belief that only good would come upon their household.

For the full story, read The Legend of the Hearth Cricket on our blog.

So adorable and memorable
How adorable a gift for someone who has a hearth or an area of collectibles. The legend makes this item and wish for even a dollar or two more, they would provide the story of the heath cricket in a more stable condition because without the legend, its just an insect,, might look like a cockroach even It is the story that sold me to give these as gifts this year. Just a thought, but the he cricket story is what makes this special, otherwise, get any ole trinket.

Looks a bit better in the picture
I would have been happier if the screws used to hold the three component parts were better-integrated into the design, but I am still happy enough to give it as part of a housewarming gift.

Hearth Cricket
I ordered this hearth cricket because I heard that crickets being good fortune. Especially gold ones. I keep him on my hearth where he looks just fine.

Whimsical
I bought the cricket but not having a hearth, I put him on a shelf where I can always see him. He's a bit smaller than I thought he would be, but I love him just the same. I have always heard about having a cricket on the hearth would bring good luck so I hope having one on a shelf will bring me luck. The first time I saw him in the catalog I loved him, so I finally had to buy him! I am so happy to have him!
