Victorian Staffordshire Figure with Faux Clock
Hundreds of pottery factories were set up in Staffordshire during the Victorian period, many of them producing crued colourful figures, sold to decorate the more humble households. In a dark cottage in winter they must have seemed so bright and joyful, their colours brightening any room they were displayed, from kitchen to bed chamber.
This is a large staffordshire group with a faux clock face, this is a typical design in the victorian period of a figure incorpurating a clock, clocks at this time would be expensive so a humble cottage would have a figure on the mantlepiece to look like a clock.
The condition is very good, their is a very small chip to the underneth of the figure which is not visable when the figure is upright. Their is some minor paint loss to the black hair of the figures.
