In this pastoral group, a young man and woman stand beneath an arching floral bower with sheep at their feet and a hound by their side. The elegance of their clothing suggests that they are not actual shepherds but rather dressed in their costumes, emulating the lives of simple, country folk.

Stamped "Tittensor" in three places on the back of the base, "Shepherd and Shepherdess" was most likely made by Charles Tittensor (Born 1764), part of a family of Staffordshire potters and modelers, known to have worked in Shelton, Staffordshire between about 1802 and the 1830s.
