Further information

This figure and Spring (L2012.126) come from a set of four pairs of figures, each pair representing one of the four seasons. The decoration is of a style associated with a London workshop, possibly that of James Giles. The bases have the ‘dry edge’ characteristic of Derby figures at this period.
