A very naïve antique Staffordshire lion figure, circa 1850. A highly sought after form. According to Kit Harding in her book, “Staffordshire Figures of the 19th and 20th Centuries”:
“A ship bound for America that had sunk off the Kent coast in 1853 was salvaged by divers over 140 years later, and Staffordshire figures were found, including figures of lions and elephants. The only water damage was to the colour.”
Height: 3 ¾” (8.9 cm)
Minor inconsistencies in the glaze commonly found on Staffordshire figures of this period. This is not considered damage. Some loss of the soft gilt border. No chips, cracks or repairs.
