Silks and Ribbons would be hard to miss as a collectable display piece. Depicted seated on a bench, this character’s a feast for the eyes, from her green dress and white apron, to the bold red bow atop her black hat. As she keeps warm in her patterned shawl and red neckerchief, this mature lady proffers a rainbow-like selection of silks and ribbons. This Royal Doulton Street Vendors figurine was designed by Leslie Harradine from 1949, available until 2001.
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..
