A pair that matched this set was discovered in a cache on the site of Burslem Old Town Hall during excavations in 1938 (illustrated by Pat Halfpenny in English Earthenware Figures 1740-1840, p. 247). The cache was dated to within a few years of 1828, so this pair would come from around that date. Height is about six and a half inches. The woman is impressed numeral 4. Overspray from a previous restoration makes it hard to assess what has or has not been repaired. To the eye the only flaw is that parts of both bocages are missing. Otherwise they look perfect.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
