"Tithe Pig" group of three figures including a farmer holding a pig as his wife holds her baby, a basket of eggs at her feet, a parson, two bundles of wheat at his feet, all below a tree with modeled foliage on a grassy green oval mound. Made by the Old Crown Derby China Works (also known as the King Street Factory) . It is marked on the underside with the red painted mark with a crown over crossed swords and the letter D with the initials S and H (stand for proprietors Stevenson and Hancock). Tithe is derived from the word "Tenth" and refers to a sort of tax or levy that Christians traditionally contributed to the Church. This group is inspired in the medieval fable where the farmer's wife will not part from her tenth pig unless the parson takes her tenth child (no child, no pig!). An earlier version of this group is part of the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. In very good condition with minor imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 8" tall by 6.3" wide by 3.9" deep (20 cm x 16 cm x 10 cm) approximately.

Item ID: 1460
