Market Woman Cabbage Seller
Soft-paste porcelain figure of a market woman selling cabbages, standing on a scrolled base, painted in enamels
Soft-paste porcelain figure of a market woman, appearing greyish-white, slip-cast with hand-modelled details, lead-glazed, and painted underglaze in 'Littler's blue', and onglaze in green, yellow, two shades of puce-pink, a little orange-red, and reddish-brown enamels. The unglazed underside is uneven, and has a circular ventilation hole which opens into a larger oval depression. The irregularly shaped mound base has two curved rocaille frills across the front, and a tall rock at the back. The market woman stands on her left leg with her right foot crossed over her left, and leans against the rock on her right upper arm. She holds a knife in her right hand, and has a cabbage under her left arm. By her feet on the viewer's left there is an applied flower, and a basket filled with cabbages, asparagus and carrots. The woman has ruddy cheeks, red lips and brown hair drawn back loosely into a chignon at the back. Her bodice is yellow with pink outlining on the stomacher. She has a yellow shawl and a pink floral patterned scarf round her shoulders and tucked into a blue strap across the top of her stomacher. Her pink skirt is scattered with darker pink daisies. Her apron is blue, and her shoes are yellow. The cabbage under her arm is green, the flower on the ground is orange-red, and the basket is brown with naturalistically coloured vegetables. The base has a pink and a green frill, and the rock is green.
