A Pair of Staffordshire Pottery Tigers - circa 1855
Wow, Tigers !
These are so rare.
They are absolutely delightful.
Our Staffordshire animals are so marvellous.
So many dogs, cats, deer etc. etc.
I find them all beautiful.
The Lions, Leopards, Cheetah's are scarce,
but when do you see this pair of Tigers ?
The answer is you don't.
A very rare pair, the only actual pair I have seen.
This is a true pair, they have always been together.
There is a little flaking of the enamels,
there is some kiln dust,
mainly on the back and underside of the right hand Tiger.
There is no damage
and there is no restoration
