English Royal Doulton Bone China Woman in Red Dress Top O'the Hill CORP 1937
Description: A nice and rather beautiful vintage porcelain or bone china figurine of a lady standing in a pink/red colored dress with a colored scarf and holding her dark hat on top of her head. The dress appears to be blowing forward and the woman is holding her hat so it does not fly away which when taken in the contest of the title of the piece "Top O'the Hill" she is standing on top of windy hill. The lady has blond hair, a dark blue hat, and a colorful long scarf around her waist. She is standing with her head up and holding on to her hat with one hand while pushing her dress down with her other hand. She has beautiful eyes, red lips, and red cheeks. The figurine was designed by leading Doulton artist, Leslie Harradine, and issued from 1937 to 2004. This is a piece of hand painted and nicely crafted bone china.
