This charming little Staffordshire figure was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1820. The early hollow figure depicts a little girl resting against a tree; in her arms is a wicker basket full of freshly picked fruit and produce. The figure is likely an allegory of autumn, celebrating the success of farming that season.
We love the mixture of colours in the glazes, the combinations of greens, yellows and reds means this piece will display excellently alongside any collection of early folk art. This figure, in particular, would ideally display alongside a collection of early English Prattware.
Figures such as these are highly collectible; they look perfect when showcased as part of a collection of early Staffordshire figures and wares. Please see our collection of 18th and early 19th century pottery and porcelain listed separately in our store.
