References

A finely detailed creation probably by Samson, made to imitate Derby or Bow of the 1760's. The giveaway is in the paste it is made from - Derby would be soft paste, this is hard paste. The colours, stances, and small details such as lips also give it away as a 19th century effort, rather than original.
