Fair Fairings?

Shot with Olympus E520
London has a vast number of exclusive antiques shops that huddle together in areas like Portobello Road or here, in Chelsea. Fairings are those curious, mostly fairly coarse china ornaments that were bought or won at fairs in the 19th Century. While they are collectible, they are not normally fantastically expensive. I thought I'd use this picture in connection with the Bank Holiday and Fairs. However, given the prominence of these figures and the location of the shop, I suspect that my initial identification of these as fairings might well be wrong.
