I had always thought of this figure as 'the water carrier' but what do I know? The title tells me she is A Galego. This, I think, is a Galician, a person from the north-west corner of Spain. Ralph Wood made several figures on the Spanish theme. I wish I knew the design sources. The Spanish Dancer pair below is one of my favorites. This pair is impressed "71" and "73"on the back.
FYI, Gascony sits just above Galicia but below France, so the Gasconian is the Gallego's next door neighbor, so to speak. Dudson rightly decided this was all a bit too much, so Dudson figures are simply titled Gasconian and Mate.
