Victorian Staffordshire Group with Watch Holder

Victorian Staffordshire Group with Watch Holder

SKU: RJ00600
£50.00Price

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 style of staffordshire figure would have been displayed on a mantlepiece possibly in a bedroom. It is of a young couple with their pet dog. Watch holders were very popular in the Victorian period, there is a hole in the front of the figure, in the evening when the man of the house has finished his work, he would take his pocket watch off and place it through the hole in the back of the figure, this would sit on the internal ledge and display the face of the pocket watch from the front, thus looking like a mantle clock. This would have been in the home of a lower to middle income family.

 

The head of the figure on the right has been broken off and reattatched and also the head of the bird held by the figure on the left has also been replaced, it is showing some crazing to the glaze like most Stafforshire figures.

 

Dimensions: 14cm x 25 cm x 6.5 cm
