I thought it would be of interest to collectors to see this colourway of Harry Tittensor’s Pretty Lady originally introduced in 1920 together with the inspiration for this special lady. This particular colourway, just discovered, is exceptional and really evokes the textile patterns of the original ilustration, which are so typical of this time when there was a revival in such romanticism and also pre-raphaelite art.
The rare Pretty Lady and Artur Rackham’s “Wendy”. Below is a rear view of the Doulton figure that really does show how true to the original illustration, Doulton have tried to be.
Many thanks to Harvey’s Collectables for the pictures of Pretty Lady.
