English Staffordshire Figurine Young Man & Lady, C.1850-1860
A wonderful English Staffordshire Figurine of a young man standing and young lady sitting by a waterfall. The young women has a basket of flowers under her arm and the young man seems to be pondering the moment. (Today we would think he was on his cell phone.)
This figurine is 5 inches high is 2 3/8 inches wide and 3 3/4 inches long. This figurine may have been intended to be an ink well but I think it is to hold one piece to tightly wrapped paper to help light the fire. Other than crazing this charming figurine is in very good condition with no chips, repairs or cracks.
