    Hello CW friends!!

    Here are my Goebel The Blueboy and Pinkie porcelain figurines. They are numbered FF290 (The Blueboy) and FF291 (Pinkie)

    Based on the Goebel hallmark symbol, these would be from 1972, but they have 1966 stamped into the bottom of each.

    These are 9" tall and are from the portraits of Thomas Gainsborough.

    "Pinkie" was the family nickname of Sarah Barrett Moulton. Her portrait was painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence in 1794, when she was about 11 years old. She was born in Jamaica to wealthy English plantation owners and died about a year after the portrait was completed. Her brother, Edward, later changed his surname to Moulton-Barrett, and fathered the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

    "The Blueboy", thought to be a portrait of Jonathan Buttall, the son of a wealthy English hardware merchant, was painted by Thomas Gainsborough around 1770, in clothing from an earlier period in tribute to artist Sir Anthony Van Dyck (1599-1641).

    Thanks to all for stopping in to have a look!!

      Thanks for sharing these figurines and their stories, jscott, funny how you see something so often and don't really think about the histories behind them. And Goebels is of course famed in itself, best known for their Hummels. :)

      As a former Hummel collector Scott, I love and appreciate anything that Goebel made. Your two pieces are great, in excellent condition, and the story is just icing on the cake! Thanks for sharing :-)

      I have a few Goebel animals, so this was a bit different from the norm for me to buy. Thanks very much for the comment, the love and for stopping in. Many thanks to you!!!
