A Staffordshire Figure of Pheasant Shooting circa 1815



Wow!


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

D.M. & P Manheim, New York.


It was part of The Hope McCormick Collection of Staffordshire Pottery,
