A Staffordshire Figure of Pheasant Shooting circa 1815
This really is a wonderful figure.
It is just so naive, so English........so Staffordshire.
There are not many Staffordshire sporting and shooting figures, but this is
the finest example I have seen by a country mile, it is a beauty.
The colours, enamels and glaze of this figure are superb,
it is in excellent condition, with minor restoration; the tail and 1 leg of the dog.
the head of 1 bird and the tip of the gun.
This figure is very rare, it is possibly unique
and it has great provenance.
Height: 7.25 inches, Width: 8 inches

It was part of The Hope McCormick Collection of Staffordshire Pottery,
Lot No.40 Christies, New York, 21st. January 2003.

This is the actual figure in the book, page no.201
