On one of my visits to Griselda's home in Woodbridge, UK, I commented that I particularly admired this little figure.
As you can see, the figure is rather grand. The lady's shoes are gilded, as is the plume on her hat. How often do you see that on a figure? The figure can be confidently attributed to the Patriotic Group. Note the pinecone bocage, which you only see on figures that link to the Patriotic Group. I have found the base on other Patriotic Group figures too.....but I have never found a companion male figure attributable to the Patriotic Group. Come to think of it, I have never found another Patriotic Group female either.
On the other hand, some other pot bank--possibly the Enoch Wood pot bank--used the same figure molds, as you can see from the pair below, in the Willett Collection, Brighton and Hove Museums.
Here you see the 4th Edition of Griselda Lewis's A Collectors History of English Pottery. When I got this book, I had never seen a bocage figure--in fact, I hadn't seen a single early Staffordshire figure, with or without bocage. But when I saw the dandies on the dustjacket, I knew I wanted them...badly!
