Figure, of tambourine player

This porcelain figure of a female tambourine player in 18th century dress was made between around 1760 and 1770, possibly at William Littler's factory at West Pans in East Lothian.

The figure is standing on a platform base with four scroll feet and vertical scrolled support.

William Littler arrived in Scotland in the early 1760s after the failure of his Longton Hall factory in Staffordshire. The founder of Scotland's porcelain industry, his factory made high quality, if uneconomical, wares until its closure in 1777.
