A delightful Staffordshire group figure of a young girl and boy playing with their new toys. The boy on the left is dressed in a tricorn hat, ruffeted shirt, jacket, kilt and pantaloons, they appear to be party clothes, he is holding a spinning stick in his right hand, his left is across the shoulders of his sister. The girl is bare headed, wearing a long skirted dress tied at her waist with a belt, in her right hand she holds a decorated ball, her left arm is down to her side and in her hand she holds a bat. This figure to my knowledge has never been recorded before, it dates to c1880 and is in good condition.

Current Condition: Minor retouching to hair enamel, firing fault to back base.
