C.1840 English Staffordshire Figure of a Sitting Toby
A sweet and very unusual English Staffordshire sitting Toby condiment container. This Staffordshire figurine, which has a removable hat, would have been part of a four piece condiment set. The hat has the cut out space for the longer handle spoon to rest.
Measurements: 3 1/2 inches high and from the bottom of the foot to the back of the figurine 3 1/8 inches long and 2 3/4 inches wide. This figurine has a the cobalt jacket and a gold gilt outlining the Jacket. The hat is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The body of this Toby figurine is also in good condition and only one very, very tiny spider type of crack, and seen only inside of the figurine near the hair line. This line can not be seen when the hat is in place.
This is the only sitting English Staffordshire Toby Mustard condiment item I have found in 26 years.
