Pew figure group in salt-glazed stoneware with applied brown details. Hand-modelled. Three figures seated on a high-backed settle. The woman in the centre has a close-fitting cap, striped dress and apron with her hands folded across her stomach. The man on the left wears a black tricorne hat and is taking snuff from his box. The man on the right in a black cap raises his left hand and takes snuff.
So-called Pew Groups are among the earliest figures made in Staffordshire. But they had little influence on the future of figure-making. They are almost entirely modelled by hand, rather than being moulded. Surviving examples appear to have been made by a mere handful of potters.
