A Beswick earthenware figure of Beatrix Potter's Amiable Guinea Pig. It was modeled by Albert Hallam and produced from 1967 until 1983.
This is the first style of this figurine, with the lighter outfit and the more carefully painted facial features.
This example has backstamp BP-3a, which was only used in 1973 and 1974.
The colors and decoration are excellent, matching Potter's delicate watercolor tones exactly.
It's 4" tall and 2.5" wide.
Condition is as new, no wear or damage.
