Pair of Early Prattware Figures Deaccessioned From Colonial Williamsburg

About

A pair of early Prattware figures, made in England circa 1800, these naive figures were deaccessioned from Colonial Williamsburg (each figure has its cat # in red ink on the inside). The potters relatively incompetent representations result in a certain primitive charm. We see a pair of Prattware figures of young women each standing on a square base. One figure is carrying a canary in its cage. The other figure holds a parasol and wears a spotted dress. This figure has a hand brushed letter "P" on the back and hand brushed letters on the base. Prattware figures were popular because they were charming and affordable to the English middle class. The figures often told a story. Here each lady carries an object, the two young women are out for a walk, one carries a parasol indicating fair weather. The other woman wears a yellow dress which is a color of spring and carries a canary. For a further discussion of Pratt figures see "Prattware English and Scottish relief decorated and underglaze colored earthenware 1780-1840" by J. and G. Lewis, Chapter 16 "Figures and Animals". Dimensions: Height 5.25 x 2" wide x 1.8" deep Condition: Excellent Price: $800 for the pair.
