An unusual pair of terra-cotta (red/peach clay) spill vase figures of a boy and girl. They are in simple peasant dress with bare feet and are each holding a cornucopia (‘horn of plenty’).

The pale colour clay contains very fine mica which can be seen when it reflects light. They are crudely press-moulded and have flat bases.

These are certainly not British but beyond that it is difficult to establish an origin. The style could be German, Dutch or French, and they undoubtedly date to the C19th. These are a charming and rare pair of continental earthenware folk figures.
