Victorian Parian Bust of William Ewart Gladstone

SKU: RJ01390
£95.00Price

In The 18th and 19th century every house had a fireplace, and therefore a mantlepiece, and in the grander houses, several mantlepieces. These would be decorated with all manner of things from clocks, candlesticks, photograph frames and pottery and brass ornaments.

 

Parian ware is a type of porcelain immitating marble. It was developed in 1845 by Staffordshire pottery manufactureres, Mintons.  It is named after Paros, a greek island famed for its use of fine-textured Parian marble.  These busts would have had pride of place on the mantlepiece or shelves of a wealthier household.
