Description

Samson model. A ceramic model of Uncle Toby and Widow Wadman.┬áThe figures are 34.5 cm high (including boscage). The ornament is marked on the back with a gilt anchor and intersecting italic ‘D’ – if this were genuine it would indicate the piece was manufactured at the Chelsea factory of the Derby Porcelain Works between 1769 – 1784 but infact was made by Samson in Paris in the 19th century. The figures represented are very similar to the┬áCopeland model.
