These pearlware figures of young boys were made in England about 1820. Each shows a young boy dressed in period clothing and carrying a bird's nest with 3 speckled eggs. These two charming figures are great examples of naive English pottery at its best. The faces are very crudely molded, the painting of the bases is rudimentary and the overall modeling of the figures is quite elementary. The taller of the two is 5.25 inches tall. The hollow bases indicate their early age.

They are in excellent antique condition with only a few nibbles to the bases and a chip to the underside of one figure, completely obscured when standing. 

A charming pair of early 19th C Pearlware figures of young boys, English, c1820
