Whilst these pictures below appear a little bizarre or possibly kitsch today, when the originals were painted Doulton’s figures were obviously highly regarded even then to be used in still life pictures. The painters of these pictures remain largely unknown although I have a similar picture with Harradine’s Covent Garden figure with the signature Wood.
There is little left to say other than the majority of these images have turned up as framed prints save the clear exception below that is clearly a tea tray!
June as a tea tray.
Polly Curtsey as she appears to have originally been known.
