Each figure representing a trade or occupation, the bodies of terracotta, clothed in cloth or linen, all raised on later wood stands.

Made by native craftsmen in Bengal, an area where figurative modelling flourished from the early 18th century, these naturalistic figures are representative of life and culture during colonial rule. Accordingly they provide an accurate historical record of the day to day life during the 19th century in Northern India.

Restoration and wear with some implements missing.

Height: 7” – 8” (18 – 20 cms); seated figures 4” (10cm)
