Pair of Staffordshire Hairdresser and Shoemaker Groups


An unusual pair of mid 19th century Staffordshire ‘Hairdresser’ and ‘Shoemaker’ groups, on raised circular bases with scroll moulding and piercing.
Attributed to Thomas Parr.
* These are modelled after well known models produced at Derby in the 18th & early 19th centuries. It is interesting that they are direct copies of the original, rather than Staffordshire interpretations.
Date: c 1855
Height : 7½” (19cm)
Condition : Overall condition is pretty good, both ‘ladies’ have had restoration to their left hands, one of them the forearm as well. A few odd ships and small flakes, general overall wear from handling. No other restoration at all.
Stock ref : 17384/5/ybx-
Price: £ 275 for the pair, including p&p
