African lady by Paoli – Reg 900964

Kneeling lady figurine made of chalkware holding a black vase with red top close to the left hand side of her chest

[UPDATE 09/02/2020] – Many thanks to Sue from the UK for getting in touch. She kindly provided all the colour images from the piece she has in her collection. Beautiful!

This design, with a much more african looking face, appears to use very similar features to earlier work by Paoli. See the Sitting lady with vases by Paoli – Reg 891803 / 37 and just ignore the head.

    1. Hi Sue, Thanks for getting in touch. I’d love to see how the piece ended up as I have only seen it in the original registration records in Kew Gardens. And if you don’t mind me asking, where did you by it. I’m interested to know how far and wide these pieces travel. Thanks, Simon
