Staffordshire House with Front Steps to the First Floor.
This is another amusing and very pretty piece of Staffordshire. Most unusually it appears to be a multi-storied house with an ingenious front staircase to the first floor. It is in reasonable condition with one small chip on the chimney and some fading of the gold band around the front of the base. Year circa 1845.

About the Date of Manufacture
This antique was produced in the early 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.
