French Santon de Provence Clay Figure Doll Fruit Peddler
I found the following on the internet about Santon figures.
Santons have come to typify the people of Provence, their work and their trades, and they are generally depicted in 19th-century dress. A typical santon scene has as its center piece the Holy Family, the Rois Mages (the Three Kings) and angels. Shepherds call Provencal villagers to honor the Holy Family (the important notables of the village, the mayor and the parish priest, the craftsmen, such as the baker, the grocer, the butcher, the cheese vendor and musicians). Depending on where the village is located there might be a winegrower, a fisherman, a basket weaver and a potter. Then there are the common people of the village, rich and poor.
