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 charming figure of a boy on horseback, hand painted in bright colours. This would have been in a lower to middle income family.

 

 

The overall condition is good, their is a very fine hairline crack to the horses front leg, and some crazing to the glaze which is typical on Staffordshire figures.
