An unusual pair of Derby sweetmeat figures

An unusual pair of Derby sweetmeat figures, after Meissen originals, each in the form of a young man or woman, standing, carrying a large rectangular two handled wicker basket, and decorated in coloured enamels, on flower and leaf applied scroll moulded mound base, picked out in turquoise, green and puce, 7" high, circa 1780, each incised No 219

See Peter Bradshaw, Derby Porcelain Figures, page 292, figure 239, for a pair of figures of this model, incised No 192, and also page 310, where Derby model number 219 is listed as unrecorded, although Bemrose does note 'pair of basket figures' under this number
