A Staffordshire Figure of Sir Walter Scott and Maida - circa 1850
The Scottish novellist and poet with his greyhound.
Sir Walter Scott, the great novellist,
was celebrated with a number of figures.
This very large version undoubtably is the finest.
This figure when found is usually superb quality.
This stunning figure is quite simply the best example
I have had the pleasure to see.
The modelling is top drawer,
The glaze, the colouring, the gilding is brilliant
and it is in fantastic condition.
There is no damage
and no restoration.
Height: 14 inches
