Beatrix Potter mouse figurine, Hunca Munca Sweeping, Royal Albert 1989
Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) was an artist, children's author and conservationist of the British countryside,being particularly influenced by the English Lake District. She contributed much to preserving the land which subsequently became the Lake District National Park.
This delightful ornament has Hunca Munca bustling away at her work in a pink floral dress with a green brush and dustpan. These china figurines are becoming increasingly collectable as Royal Albert only produced them between 1989 and 1998, having initially been produced by David Lyttleton for Beswick and first issued in 1977.
This would be a lovely ornament for a child's bedroom, particularly if it was to accompany a copy of Beatrix Potter's famous "Tales".
Height is 8 cm/3.5 inches, width is 5 cm/2 inches and depth is 7 cm/2.75 inches.
Condition is good. There are no chips or cracks. Some small surface scratches to the centre, as you might expect of a used item.
