Nick Burton - for a Quality Staffordshire Figure
        
A Staffordshire Figure of a Greenwich Pensioner - circa 1844


A fine staffordshire "Alpha factory" figure of

"The Sailor, safely moored in Greenwich Hospital".



The source of this figure is a print as titled above.
He is wearing the classic uniform of the sailor and
it is an excellent figure.

There is another version very similar that is one of a pair,
it being: "The Soldier, snug quarters in Chelsea Hospital".
I however, doubt that there is a pair to this version.
I have come across a number of examples of this figure
and feel that if a pair did exist, it would have surely come to light by now.



This lovely example is in very good condition,
some minor flaking of the enamels
but with no restoration.


Height: 8 inches
