This wooden painted figure standing alone shows a girl holding a doll. It looks as if the figure has been cut out of a provincial Spanish portrait of about 1600 and then mounted on an ebonised wood base. These type of pictures are not really paintings but form part of the furniture, called dummy boards or ‘silent companions’ and are supported by a stand. They were usually found in entrance halls of houses, as greeters, or in front of fireplaces and acted as firescreens. At Castle Drogo, Devon

1745 "Dummy boards are life-size, flat, wooden figures painted and shaped in outline to resemble figures of servants, soldiers, children & animals. They were placed in corners and on stairways to surprise visitors, or in front of empty fireplaces in the summer. Most were made by professional sign-painters and sold through cabinet-makers and upholsterers. Painters worked to commission and would provide the client with original designs for approval."
