An unusual Peggy Davies figure.

I thought I’d share this little study of a boy by Peggy Davies. It is marked simply ‘Clay Craft’ to the base, a company she ran in the 1940’s-50’s I believe. Interestingly there was a Doulton version of the same figure so I imagine either he was presented to Doulton in the red colourway and prototypes were made or else rejected by Doulton and Peggy used the design herself.

The Doulton version and a young girl too, both sold at Louis Taylor in 2005.

An interesting piece anyway and it goes to show you never know what is waiting around the corner!
