Newhaven Fishwife is a Royal Doulton figure designed by Harry Fenton and was produced from 1931 to 1938. The Newhaven fishwives had a reputation for their bargaining skills, and fishermen brought their catches for the fishwives to sell. Like the figurine, they wore costumes with layers of colorful petticoats, a muslin cap, and a scarf, the tassels of which are recreated on the figure. Like the figure, their fish were carried on their backs in creels.
