A charming pair of Staffordshire figure groups featuring a shepherd and shepherdess each with two lambs. Each piece uses shredded clay to simulate grass and foliage and shows the figures by a tree with each lamb having russet markings. There is gilt line decoration to each base. Although unmarked this type of figure group with its extensive use of shredded clay and distinctive figure types were made at the factory of James Dudson at Stoke on Trent and they date to circa 1830 - 1860. Quite scarce as an original pair.
