A wonderful matched pair of group figures of a woman seated upon a camel with a man standing below. Both are in Arabian dress.

There is a small drinking pool on the groud.

Made in Staffordshire, England c1852 by the Thomas Parr factory. The figures have invisible professional repairs to the tails of both camels.
