Description

Wonderful large Victorian porcelain sculpture of a fisherwoman in Neoclassical style. The lady is wearing a beautiful Greek puce-pink toga and holding a relief-moulded fishing net; both are sumptuously gilded. At her belt hang two fish, with lovely rainbow enamelling and carefully detailed gold scales. The woman wears a wreath of lily leaves and bulrush. Fantastic piece by one of the best British porcelain makers.
Made by Royal Worcester, c. 1890, modelled by William Boyton Kirk.

William Boyton Kirk (29 May 1824 5 July 1900) was an Irish artist, writer and clergyman. He exhibited with the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) for the first time in 1844, becoming an associate member in 1850. Among his notable works is the figure of Justice on the Belfast courthouse. For Worcester china, he designed the "Shakespeare" dessert service which was exhibited at the Dublin Exhibition of 1853. From 1848 to 1857, he designed for Belleek porcelain. He illustrated an 1853 edition of Shakespeare's Midsummer night's dream.
Great antique condition.
