Staffordshire pottery portrait bust of the English philosopher John Locke.

Wikipedia has an excellent bio of Locke, who lived from 1632 - 1704, no need to repeat it here. Suffice it so say he was an extremely important philosopher and political theorist.

This bust dates to circa early 19th Century. In researching it, I found that this figure has sometimes been attributed as someone other than Locke, but I note that there is one example with the name "Locke" inscribed on the plinth. Also, the face closely matches prints of Locke. So, I feel that the attribution is solid.

The figure is executed in colors of white, beige, black and shades of rust/russet/brown, on a simulated marble plinth with pink, green, yellow and black. The modelling is excellent, as is the coloring.

Excellent condition, with just a few pinpoint enamel losses to the cape. 7 1/4" tall. Unmarked.
