The name of this figurines is often misspelled as Irvine. The right form is Ivrine, probably because of the typical ivory colour of these ceramic statuettes. Previously I posted an another Ivrine figurine - Little Red Riding Hood - in a characteristic colour of this range. However some Ivrine figures were produced also in under-glaze pastel shades like this Grecian lady with jar and flowers. These are very rare.
Fieldings & Co introduced the range in the 1919 and they were made until the early 1930s.
