A Staffordshire Figure of a Deer Hunter - circa 1845
Made by the "Green Base" factory.
Regular visitors to this site will know
I have a real love of the figures produced by this factory.
Here we have a wonderful composition of a Stag, Dog and Huntsman.
I once had a set of 4 figures making a set of country pursuits.
See below for a picture.
This example is very well modelled,
its marvellously painted in a splash of enamel colours.
Then our potters dazzled us with some cobalt blue and
finally a little gilding.
What a beautiful little figure.
In fantastic condition
and with no restoration.
