References: This figure is illustrated in Bradshaw’s ‘Derby Porcelain Figures’ as one of the ‘Dresden Shepherds’ of the later type (ie 1770’s). This example, however, belongs to the earlier period, and the painting of the flowers on his pants are by a distinctive hand known as the ‘Cotton Stem’ painter.
