Royal Doulton’s child study ‘Dunce’ lot 121 @Bonhams 11.08.20

This most unusual figure is making an outing this coming Tuesday at Bonhams in London.

Although colourways are recorded as HN 6, 310 and 357 this particular version is a colourway. Impressed ‘79’ to the base signifying the model number and carrying an impressed date for April 1924, this child is nearly 100 and not looking bad for that!

Modelled by the great Charles Noke at the introduction of his now world famous HN collection in 1913, so few examples of him have turned up in the succeeding century.
