Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Scarce Pair of Stoneware Scottish Highlander Figurals.
These beauties were made by William H. Farrar of Geddes, New York. Farrar worked in Geddes from c. 1857-1868 (William C. Ketchum, Jr., Potters and Potteries of New York State, 1650-1900, pp. 303-311).
The figure on the left is a woman in highlander dress seated on a stump reading a book with a sheep at her feet. The figure on the right is a man also dressed in highlander garb, including a kilt, and is playing a bagpipe with a dog resting at his feet. Lots of detail in both figures. 9 1/4" tall.
A similar pair is featured in American Folk Sculpture by R. L. Bishop, figure 401, p. 216.
Excellent and Good Condition. The figure on the left has a 3/16" flake on the back side of the top feather of her hat. Otherwise as made. The figure on the right has his head cleanly broken off and reglued at the neck (closeups). Otherwise as made.
