Among the less common portrayals is this pair, which I attribute to the Patriotic Group. I think they are rather lovely, definitely NOT boring.
So who made the together-forever archer and sportsman? I don't know, but I think they were made by the same pot bank that made the unique dandies pair below. You can see the similarities in the bocages, bases, and painting. Also, I have examined all these figures and the glazes and enamels are very closely similar.
We have come across a few other instances of pearlware figures found on one base that normally occur separately. As a reminder, here they are.
Several potters made figures of old age, but the group below is the only example I have seen with both figure together forever on one base.
