A pair of unrecorded (Schkolne) Pratt-type figurines of Jobson and Nell.
Jobson and his wife, Nell, were characters in a hit early 18thc comedy and ballad. The play continued to be performed into the Nineteenth century and such figurines attest to its popularity.
It has been suggested to me that these figures originated in the North East of England due to the way the black detailing on the face is handled.
