Large 14.5" tall 19th century Staffordshire spill vase, English traditional charming pottery so popular for your English Manor house decor. The statue is in excellent unbroken and undamaged condition, is 7" wide and 3" deep front to back. Hand painted pottery. A "spill", for anyone who doesn't recognize that term, was the long rolled up paper 'wand' that was used in the 19th century to start fires in fireplace or wood stove. The vases like these were mantel vases and at the ready, holding the long rolled paper tubes.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, I find no chips at all to report, no cracks or breaks, no restoration. A lovely old one with the popular kilt-wearing shepherd, his dog, a couple of sheep and a girlfriend at his side. Charming.
