Stock No: 001233

 

Height: 12.75 Inches / 32.5 cm

 

Reference: Harding Second Addendum, Page 271, Fig 2207A

A superb large standing figure of a Welsh woman who wears a Welsh hat with headscarf, long jacket, and a long skirt with an apron. She holds a bag in her left hand and a filled basket is over her right forearm. This figure could possibly portray Jenny Jones or represent Victorian regional Welsh costumes by the manner of decoration. This is one of a handful of these large Welsh ladies to survive the years. Harding referrers to his example as being very rare and the only one ever recorded. I am proud to have found another example and be able to offer this piece fresh to the market for sale. This figure was made c1850 and is in superb original condition with no damage, repairs or restoration.
