An unusual and uncommon 19th century Staffordshire figure of the Queen Victoria and Emperor Napoleon III.
The figure reads Queen Emperor in raised capital letters on the front base, the two figures painted in the typical Staffordshire glaze, the emperors Cape in a lustre style.
It is large, heavy and solid as is to be expected in Victorian Staffordshire mantle figures, there is a lot of crazing in the glaze but no chips or cracks.
Made in England in the 1850's.
The white base of the figure us more white than the pictures depict due to a warm light being cast, the second photograph is the best representation.
Any unusual and unique piece to find and particularly in such good condition, there is a very similar figure listed in the National trust collections as part of a collection from Attingham Park, Shropshire (Accredited Museum) and on exhibition at the Wedgwood Museum, Stoke-on-Trent.
Approx 12" height, 10" width and 2.5" depth.
