  1. And she will be on display at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery from 20th March till 13th May. Joining her will be a Merman from the Horniman Museum in London. Come and see for yourself!

    Thanks for the info. Apparently St. Ives has or had a display of “Staffordshire Figures and Corn Dollies”. I wonder if these and the mermaid – and possibly other similar figures and dolls – might be brought together for an exhibition at the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, at some point?
