Victorian Staffordshire Figure of Young Girl and Dog
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.
