Street vending is such a tradition that it passes from generation to generation. Here’s a splendid portrayal of grandmother and granddaughter, almost seamlessly bonded in lilac hues as the elder plies her trade. There’s all the color and class you could want of a Royal Doulton piece, but it’s the young girl’s innocent face that forms the focal point of this charming figurine. Originally designed by Leslie Harradine and launched in 1949.
Inspired by the paintings of Augustus John, this series depicts several characters who stood in the city streets of London selling things from balloons to flowers to oranges..
