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 all rooms from kitchen to bed chamber.

 

This is a lovely staffordshire figure of a young girl and a huge dog, it would have been in the home of a lower to middle income family.

 

The overall condition is good with a little grazing to the glaze as is typical on staffordshire figures, the nose of the dog is slightly rubbed and s showing the background clay.
