Victorian Staffordshire Figure of a Lady
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 good sized staffordshire figure of a lady with flowers in her hand. This would have been in the home of a lower income family.
Condition is good with only a little rubbing to the hat, it has no chips or cracks.
Dimensions: 12cm x 7cm x 24cm high
