A Staffordshire Figure Miss Nightingale circa 1855

This is one of the classic Staffordshire portrait figures,
Florence Nightingale with a Wounded British officer.

Born in 1820 Florence was named after the city of her birth.
She became a legend for her work during the Crimean War 1854-1856,
but worked tirelessly for army sanitary reform, the improvement of nursing
and general public health until her death in 1910.

A lovely, rare figure.
It has a great range of bright enamel colours and is well modelled
Florence has a slight modelling touch to the tip of her nose
and a small chip to the outside of her scarf.
As you may see from the pictures, barely visible.
the title is a little rubbed and the figure is finished
with an excellent glaze.

A fine and desireable figure
and there is no restoration.

Height: 10 inches
