Dr Syntax Derby porcelain figure, showing him with a yellow scarf holding his hat down as he steps off a rock into water, on a low grassy plinth. Unmarked, previously unrecorded, identified from the Derby figure list as figure no.G13 ‘Dr Syntax Crosses a Lake’, c. 1800.


Probable repair to left hand


11cm high


This Dr Syntax figure doesn't appear in any of the documentation. In the 'figure list' taken from factory records & reprinted by Bradshaw, the items G11-24 are from a series illustrating 'Dr Syntax In search of the picturesque'. Three are listed as 'unknown to author', and no. 13 'Dr Syntax Crossing a Lake' is quite appropriate for this figure.
