The Orange Lady is an icon of street vending possibly inspired by the street cry ‘Here’s oranges nice, at a very small price.. .’. Burdened by two baskets of oranges, this rosy-cheeked lady retains her humor and dignity. She’s keeping warm and comfortable in a long pink dress and patterned shawl. This delightful Street Vendors figure is based on the original designed by Leslie Harradine that was launched in 1936.
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..
