This is a very attractive Victorian Staffordshire figurine, which dates to about the 1880s. It is a genuine 19th-century example and is in excellent condition.
It is a nice larger example for display - and she measures 13 1/2 inches in height.
The model shows a fishwife who is preparing to go out and sell a catch of fish - she shows these off in a shallow pale yellow basket - which she holds out in front of her. There are little "silver darlings" - or herrings all set out in her basket.
To the left-hand side is the abstracted form of a yellow fishing net.
The fishwife wears a bonnet to cover her long brown hair - it is tied under her neck by a ribbon - she has a full skirt with petticoats and aprons - and she has a lace-up bodice.
There are remnants of gold gilt highlights all over. Little air vent to the back to the top of the wall section. The base is completely sealed.
It has a good bit of weight to it - most definitely an antique issue - and NOT some sub-standard modern reproduction. Unpacked is weighs 1.4 kg.
