This is a fine antique pottery figurine made at one of the Staffordshire Potteries.
It features a pair of Scottish Newhaven fishwives who are shown in their traditional costumes. They have heavy, striped petticoats and black overdress which are hitched up. They wear aprons and scarves around their heads. They stand on a grassy bank with a bucket or basket at their side for keeping their fish in.
Always an attractive and much sought-after subject. This model is harder to find - and this is reflected in my asking price.
This figurine is in good antique condition. It dates to the 1860s / 1880s. It is a genuine antique piece - and most definitely NOT a later reproduction.
It has no chips or cracks - there is minor and very fine craquelure to the glaze on close-up inspection - this is not disfiguring but is commensurate with age.
My little figurine is 8 1/4 inches in height and has a width of 6 3/4 inches. The depth is 2 3/4 inches.
