Sometimes known as Little Red Riding Hood.
Signed J. Gott fecit. Circa 1826.
Carved in marble this statue relates to a previously untraced figure, last recorded sold in 1869 at the Christies Peter Norton of Soho Square Sale (Lot 1092). An almost identical figure, recently sold at auction, was named as 'Little Red Riding Hood', presumably relating to the model of this name carved in 1832 (as listed in Gunnis). It is possible that this is in fact the 'Little Red Riding Hood' model and the recently sold model is the 'Girl with Basket'.
