Staffordshire Pew Groups

Recently on a visit to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, I stumbled on some rather quaint pottery figures in black and white that I immediately fell in love with. They are called Staffordshire Pew Groups. Here are some examples I found online:

Although you can't take photos in the Fitzwilliam Museum, they have a huge searchable image catalogue, so you can see more if you follow this link here.
