A Staffordshire Figure of Napoleon & Albert - circa 1854
The outbreak of the Crimean War brought together
Great Britain and France in an alliance with Turkey, against Russia.
Our Staffordshire potters recorded this with a number of figures,
particularly of Napoleon and Prince Albert.
This version, with a distinctive purple title was made in two sizes,
this being the larger one.
The sharp modelling and colouring of this example is superb
and it has an lovely full glaze.
It is in excellent condition with no damage and with no restoration.
If this is a figure you desire, you will not find a better one !
