That's not to say my quest for a pair of gardeners has been totally futile, but it certainly has not been easy. I did finally buy this little pair at auction in Canada---not a simple process, but that's what it took to add a pair of gardeners to my shelf.
The dearth of good pairs of gardeners hasn't stopped me from buying fine unusual single figures, like the two lovely ladies below.
This lady gardener (attributed to the Patriotic Group pot bank) has gilded shoes and a feather. She is a firm favorite in my collection....but I have yet to see the male gardener that I am sure was made to accompany her.
