This antique has been viewed 22 times in the past month with the most views from China.


This is a charming piece of Staffordshire. The price reflects some minor imperfections which are shown in our photographs. Please note that there is a chip on the reverse of the left hand pitched roof, also that the left hand chimney has been re-glued, and a very small part of the Shredded Clay moss is missing at the top front of the left hand pitched roof. There is also some wear on the gold rim. The remainder of this delightful piece is in good condition.
About the Date of Manufacture
This antique was produced in the Victorian era.
About Staffordshire Pottery
Middle class Victorians loved clutter. On every table stood figures, animals, vases, and other ornaments produced by the Staffordshire potteries.
A combination of the right clays, inventive potters such as Josiah Wedgwood and available labour made the Staffordshire district the centre of the china industry. Many small forgotten factories as well as the giants such as Spode, Wedgwood, Adams, clustered in the towns of Burslem, Cobridge, Fenton, Longton, Stoke and Tunstall, now incorporated in the present day town of Stoke-on-Trent.
Englandís Industrial Revolution coincided almost exactly with the start of Queen Victoria's reign in 1837, creating wealth from industry. The new middle classes were eager to emulate their betters by decorating their homes with objects similar to costly Meissen and Chelsea figures, and Staffordshire potters obliged by turning out painted and glazed pottery houses, sheep, dogs, cattle and more exotic animals such as zebra and elephants. Figures of gods and goddesses, examples drawn from literature, famous political and military men and above all, representations of royalty, all found homes in England and America.
