A Swain


A swain is a young lover or suitor… We think this is a swain.  Presumably he looks so miserable because the lady* statuette (Swainetta?) that would have been the pair to this has done a runner.   C’mon folks (especially you who have a poetic bent) give this chap a loving home. 

Made of ceramic.

We guess early 19th century – certainly old.

In good nick apart from a crack in his bottom…

4½ inches high. 

(For those of you who are puzzled by our apparent fluid switching from metric to imperial measures and back again…and are too thick to work it out, we attempt to stick to the measures that were in use at the time when an object was made…. But sometimes we forget.)

*…. Or perhaps it was another bloke?  The jury is out.
