Victorian Staffordshire Figure of aSheep and Boy
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.
A charming figure of a young boy stood in front of a huge Sheep, part of the charm of staffordshire is that the figures are often out of proportion.
This figure is in good condition with no breaks or repairs, there is crazing to the glaze which is typical of stafforshire figures.
