Description

Imposing Victorian Staffordshire figure of Admiral Sir James Whitley Dean Dundas (Knight Grand Cross of the Order of Bath)
Condition: Very Good indeed for age. Well painted face.
About Admiral Dundas:
Commanding figure of Admiral Sir James Whitley Dean Dundas (1785-1862), who took part in the Napoleonic Wars, including in action at Copenhagen Dockyard shortly after the capture of the City in Aug 1807. He served as Whig MP for Greenwich and then for Devizes. He became the First Naval Lord in July 1847. He was appointed as Commander in Chief of the Mediterranean in 1852 and led all naval operations in the Black Sea during the Crimean War.
(see Balston Collection of Staffordshire figures)
About Staffordshire Pottery:
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 greyhounds, houses, sheep, dogs, cattle and more exotic animals such as zebras 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.
