A fantastic and very rare Staffordshire figure group of the Welsh farmers’ wives, fresh to the market and in good condition, the Welsh lady on the left is standing dressed in traditional Welsh attire, in her right hand she holds a basket while her left arm is to her side around her companion, she wears a shawl, long skirt, over cloak and has a tied lace bonnet around her head. The other lady also stands wearing Welsh attire holding a full basket of eggs and wearing a long skirt with an apron and over coat, she is balancing a pail on her head. Please look at the picture of the print which was the source and inspiration the potters used to make the figure. Simply fantastic!
