Rajasthan fort figures


On the way back from Norfolk last year we stopped off at Stow in the Wold, and stumbled on this series of Indian plaster figures at a small antique shop. Battered and bruised and missing limbs they werent too expensive. We were told they were Rajasthan fort figures. Despite a year long effort to find out more, we are still none the wiser. So here they are presented as is. Hope you like them!

I found this reference to such figures, which may be of interest (having just bought a dozen of them in an online auction): http://museumvictoria.com.au/collections/themes/2794/clay-modelling-in-india
