Early 19th century Walton pearlware figure group, the "Songsters" with 2 musicians standing on a grassy mound with a dog by the side of the man and a swan nestled further down. the lady plays a guitar and the man would have had a horn but this has been lost and his left arm restored in association with that loss. 

Named with the title to the base at the front amongst blue scrolls and with the "Walton" scroll on the back. Decorated in the round in bright enamels.

It measures 19cm (7 1/2") high, 12.5cm (4 7/8") wide and 9.5cm (3 3/4") deep. 

Condition: the man's restored arm does not appear to have been fabricated but has been broken and repaired at a different angle from the original; the surface has been restored and re-painted but it appears to be the original pottery underneath. As I say he is missing his horn. There would have been a raised bocage at the back which has been lost and the base has been well restored in this area. Otherwise, there is a small repair across the lady's right arm and she is missing the very tips of her fingers and there is a small chip to the tip of the dog's ear. A couple of very small glaze/enamel losses and missing a small clump of shredded clay on the base.
