A Staffordshire Figure of Huntsman - circa 1850
A large, superb quality figure.
Our Staffordshire potters produced many huntsman,
all shapes and sizes, some amongst the finest figures produced.
Country sports were and remain today,
a very important and traditional
part of English country life.
The modelling is excellent,
the figure is beautifully painted,
with bright colouring,
especially the hat and scarf.
The face is superb.
Love the horn.
It is in very good condition.
The black enamel on the hound
a little flaked and washed out.
There is no restoration.
Height: 13.5 inches
