Victorian Staffordshire Figure of a Cottage
Hundreds of pottery factories were set up in Staffordshire during the Victorian period, many of them producing crude 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 staffordshire figure of a cottage. This would have been in the home of a lower income family.
Condition is good with only a little rubbing to the paint, it has no chips or cracks.
Dimensions: 16cm x 13cm x 6cm.
