Figure, of woman
Add to album

This glazed and painted earthenware figure of a woman was probably made at one of the potteries in Prestonpans in East Lothian. It dates from around 1820.

The woman depicts the season of 'Autumn'. Her long dress is painted with leaves and flowers and she has a dark red cloak around her shoulders.

From 1750 onwards, large-scale potteries were established on the south side of the Firth of Forth, at Prestonpans, Prestongrange, West Pans, Musselburgh and Portobello. Much of the skilled workforce came from the older established Staffordshire potteries.
