A charming decorative pottery pearlware glaze early nineteenth-century group figure of the Dandies with side bocage, painted with overglaze enamel decoration c.1810-30. The Dandies are modelled standing on a round base with scrolled mouldings. The pair are depicted in fancy attire the female wearing a wonderful floral bonnet, both hold baskets. In Myrna’s words, “Dandy figure groups ooze personality” and this example is no exception. Although some of the groups utilise closely similar moulds, slight differences in placement or painting impart unique characteristics that allow each group to exude its own personality. This example could be attributed to the Patriotic Group.

Current Condition: Professional invisible restoration at neck of male figure and chip to bocage.
