Modeller: Gwendoline Parnell, whose Grandmother was one of the Ladies in Waiting to Queen Victoria, had a studio in Chelsea producing pottery figures from 1916 to 1935 and subsequently worked for the Royal Worcester Company.

She liked the painter to put the initials “GMP” under the base of the figures she modelled.
